Cars being keyed in Oakland Gardens
From CBS 2:
Cars are being vandalized in a Queens neighborhood, and residents say it has been going on for months – all on one specific street.
As CBS2’s Erin Logan reported, a vandal or vandals are clearly making their mark on more than a few cars on a small stretch of 75th Avenue in Oakland Gardens, Queens.
“When her car was vandalized, there were other people’s cars vandalized. At that point, I proceeded to call the cops and told them what happened,” [Nerry] Nayzov sad. “At that point, we saw an elderly man who scratched my neighbor’s car right in front of me — while police were on scene.”
Police arrested that man immediately, and Nayzov thought the problem was solved. But the vandals did not stop there.
Two and a half weeks later, more cars were damaged. CBS2 counted at least three on one side of the street, and even more on the other side.
The owner of a maroon sport-utility vehicle and a black Nissan Maxima were also saying “enough is enough” Sunday.
Paul Guterman and his wife did not even realize their Maxima was damaged until Sunday night. They asked why everyone was hovering over the cars – and then sure enough, they saw the answer.
