SOUTH PARK TOWNSHIP, Pa. (KDKA) – Police are trying to figure out who smashed several windows in South Park.
According to South Park Township Police, it began Saturday night around 6:30 p.m. when someone walking along Ridge Road tore out a mailbox.
The suspect then allegedly tried to use the mailbox to smash in the front glass door of a home on Ridge Road.
The glass wouldn’t break, police say, so he went to the side door — which was also made of glass — and shattered it. He then went down to another house along the road and threw a rock at that home’s front glass door.
According to police, the suspect continued on to Amy Drive where he picked up another rock and threw it through the window of a parked car. The owner of the car didn’t want to go on camera, but told KDKA he got the back window fixed on Tuesday, costing him $200.
“It was a little unnerving,” said South Park resident Tiffany Young-Burnett.
On Ridge Road, Young-Burnett said she is thankful her home was missed.
Surveillance footage captures the male suspect police say is responsible for the damage.
“It looks like he basically went down the line and thank goodness skipped my house, but we are well protected here so,” said Young-Burnett.
In addition to the car window that was broken, another neighbor a couple doors down said the man tried opening the back window of her home without much success.
“It was more upsetting to my kids. Especially my kindergartener. She had a hard time sleeping that night because the police were out there and the dogs were barking,” said Young-Burnett.
She went on to say, “I’m hoping it was no one from here. I hope it was an intoxicated person just being stupid.”
Anyone with information is asked to call Sgt Banas at 412-833-1000.
