More than 20 vehicle windows were smashed with rocks over the weekend in one Atwater neighborhood, the Atwater Police Department said.
Nearly all of the reports came from the Bridgewater Street area in south Atwater, Lt. Samuel Joseph said.
Joseph said it was one of the largest clusters of vandalism he has seen.
“It’s the worst I can remember in a very long time,” Joseph said. “We’ve never had it quite as bad as this, that I can recall.”
Police said they received about 25 reports of windows smashed in vehicles and a few homes throughout Saturday. Officers investigated about 15 reports in the morning and about 10 that afternoon.
No arrests have been made.
Damage reports were still being compiled Monday.
“It doesn’t appear to be gang-related,” Joseph said. “It seems like a group of people just going after vehicles.”
Police are asking for the public’s help to identify suspects.
