Several cars were the target of vandalism this weekend.
Seven cars were targets of vandalism in Dormont over the weekend.
Five cars in the 2600 block of Voelkel Avenue and two cars, one each in the 2700 and 2800 block of Connecticut Avenue, had slashed or punctured tires.
A Voelkel Avenue resident contacted Dormont police on Saturday evening, Aug. 25, to report the vandalism. Police Chief Phil Ross said that when officers arrived, they noticed several cars on the street had damaged tires. Connecticut Avenue residents made similar reports the same evening.
All of the damage occurred late Friday night or early Saturday morning.
Ross said the incident seems to be an act of random vandalism, and that the police do not yet have suspect information, and no witnesses have come forward.
