Attacks on Parked Cars

On Sunday morning, the cars of people who were in the church preparing for the morning service were vandalized in the parking lot behind the First Reformed Church on Green Street. Five vehicles had their tires slashed; three had all four tires slashed, and two had three tires punctured. Police were called to the scene and conducted numerous neighborhood interviews.

Early this morning, just before 1 a.m., police responded to reports of someone damaging car mirrors in the vicinity of Union and South Front streets. After arriving on the scene, officers documented twenty-two cars with their mirrors damaged and one car with its driver's side window smashed by a piece of marble. The cars had been parked on South Front, First, Second, Warren, and Union streets.

Witnesses reported seeing a male, approximately 160 pounds, wearing a black hoodie, in the area. Chief Moore commented, "We had two citizens call in the complaint almost simultaneously. I think the heavy rain kept more people from seeing or hearing the vandal while he was in the act." 

Anyone with more information regarding this incident is urged to call HPD detectives at 518 828-3388.

  1. Such nonsense ... we've seen this all before in Hudson ...

    1. Yes, circa 1998. It took years but in the end they caught the guy.

  2. Rumor has it they found the person(s) responsible.
