SUNNYVALE -- Police are on the lookout for vandals they say used paint to deface cars, fences, sidewalks and the roadway along Santa Rosa Avenue late Sunday night.
Police said when officers responded to the neighborhood Monday morning, 16 cars had paint on them, and an additional four vehicle owners reported through the department's online reporting system that their cars had also been vandalized. Police added, however, that many of the cars did not sustain permanent damage, and the paint was removable.
Some residents told officers of a string of ongoing vandalism that had been happening in the neighborhood, including cars being scratched and tires being slashed. Officers have increased patrol in the neighborhood, but so far, no suspects have been caught.
Police have asked that if residents see more evidence of vandalism to contact the department at 408-730-7100.
