PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Police are investigating the vandalism of five cars in South Philadelphia sometime late Tuesday or early Wednesday.

The vandalism happened in the 1700 and 1800 blocks of S. 19th Street in the Point Breeze section of South Philadelphia.

According to investigators, five cars were targeted by the vandals. The cars were either spray-painted on, scratched with a sharp object, or both. At least one of the cars had an egg splattered on it while one car had the profane word p**** spray-painted on its windshield.

One neighbor told Eyewitness News that she had two of her cars vandalized.

So far, no arrests have been made and the investigation into the vandalism is ongoing.
