Tire slashers hit Holmesburg

Start­Frag­ment

Phil­adelphia po­lice de­tect­ives are in­vest­ig­at­ing an­oth­er tire-slash­ing case in Holmes­burg.

The van­dal­ism oc­curred last Wed­nes­day on the 7300 block of Er­drick St. and was re­por­ted to po­lice on Fri­day. Two cars were in­volved, said Capt. Frank Bach­may­er, com­mand­er of the 15th Po­lice Dis­trict.

Po­lice don’t know if there’s a con­nec­tion to two earli­er epis­odes of tire-slash­ing. On Feb. 13, tires were punc­tured on at least sev­en cars along the 4000 block of Aldine St. Six days later, 18 cars were sim­il­arly van­dal­ized along the 4000 block of Aldine St. and the 4000 block of Tees­dale St.

No ar­rests have been made. ••
