Michael Le Vell - Michael Le Vell Turns To Police Over Car Vandalism

British actor Michael Le Vell has called in police after his car was smashed by thugs, weeks after he was cleared of raping a six-year-old girl.

The Coronation Street star was found not guilty of the sex abuse charges last month (Sep13), but he has reportedly been left scared for his life after receiving a string of violent threats via social media networks.

His fears were compounded on Saturday (19Oct13) when his Ford Puma was vandalised outside his home in Manchester, England, and cops have now launched an investigation into the crime.

A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police states: "Just after 5pm on Saturday 19 October 2013, police were called to an address in Altrincham, Manchester following reports of criminal damage.

"Officers attended and discovered the rear windscreen of a car had been smashed. Inquiries are ongoing."

Le Vell, who is a household name in the U.K. for his longrunning role on hit soap opera Coronation Street, was accused of repeatedly abusing the youngster over a nine-year period from the age of six.

He denied the allegations, insisting the girl was a "fantasist" who had made up stories of sex abuse, and he was cleared of 12 charges, including five counts of rape and three indecent assaults, in September (13).
