Vandal punctures tires in Peoria neighborhood

PEORIA, AZ - Dozens of families in one Peoria neighborhood woke up to a discouraging sight Sunday morning.

Neighbors in the area of 69 Avenue and Cactus Road found flat tires on their vehicles.

Surveillance video from one home shows a man walking up to a pickup truck, taking out a small blade and puncturing a tire several times.

According to neighbors, it happened around 9:45 p.m.

Vehicles parked on the street or in the driveway were targeted.

In all, about 20 to 30 vehicles had tires punctured.

Melinda Eckard says she’s glad no one was hurt but it’s extremely frustrating, especially since they don’t know why he did it.         

Police have taken multiple reports on the vandalism.

Neighbors are hoping someone will recognize the man from the video and call police.
