Sur­veil­lance photo

A new tire slash­er is on the loose in the North­east, ac­cord­ing to Phil­adelphia po­lice.

Sur­veil­lance cam­er­as filmed the van­dal as he roamed the area of Er­drick and Frost streets in Holmes­burg on May 29, ap­par­ently us­ing an ob­ject to punch holes in the tires of sev­er­al vehicles. Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, he tar­geted one parked vehicle on Dec­atur Street be­fore slash­ing sev­er­al more tires on the 4200 block of Frost St., just east of Frank­ford Av­en­ue. He was last seen walk­ing on Frost to­ward Er­drick.

The van­dal was de­scribed as white, in his teens or early 20s, 5 feet 10 inches tall and about 160 pounds with a blue T-shirt and dark pants. Vis­it the Phil­adelphia Po­lice chan­nel on You­ to view the sur­veil­lance video. Call 215-686-TIPS or text to PP­DTIP to re­port in­form­a­tion. ••
