Police say the suspect was walking north on the 7900 block of Decatur Street when he slashed a tire on a parked car.
The suspect then traveled west on the 4200 block of Frost Street where he slashed tires on several parked vehicles on that block.
Surveillance video from the neighborhood caught the suspect committing the crimes.
In all, tires on six vehicles were slashed.
The suspect then left the area and was last seen walking on Frost Street towards Erdrick Street.
The victims are obviously irate.
“We’re highly upset. It’s just one more thing we have to put out of pocket that we really don’t have,” said Laura Rhoads.
The suspect is described as a white male in his late teens to early 20s, 5’10” and 160 lbs. He was wearing a blue t-shirt and dark-colored pants.
Anyone with information on the suspect is urged to contact police.
