Surveillance video captures vandals destroying car windshield

SPOKANE, Wash. - The owner of a vehicle on Spokane's South Hill wants to know who destroyed the windshield of her vehicle. She caught the destruction on home surveillance video. 

The video caught the senseless destruction early Saturday morning around 1:30 a.m. The video shows three young people walking down the 300 block of E 19th Ave, near Manito Park. Moments later, they are seen running back up the road, one of them smashing the car windshield as they run by.

Those vandals also apparently hit another home in the 600 block of E 19th, where another person reported their car windshield being destroyed. Police say those are the only two reports they received on that street that night. 

But, this comes just a little more than a month after another Spokane neighborhood was hit by vandals destroying car windows. Neighbors who live in a neighborhood on Crestline near Chief Gary Park reported their car windows were destroyed in the middle of the night. 

The owner of the vehicle hit on 19th Ave. suspects young people are to blame. She hopes the vandals are caught soon and that her surveillance video helps.
