A vandal slashed the tires on several cars in the College Park neighborhood late Thursday night.

Police received reports of a man walking along Madison Drive slashing tires with a knife around 11:15 p.m., according to Newark Police Department spokesman Lt. Andrew Rubin.

The vandal was described as a white man with facial hair, between 5 feet 5 inches tall and 5 feet 10 inches tall. He was wearing a green, button-down shirt.

A short time later, police located a man who fit the description and was “acting disorderly” on South Main Street, about a half mile from College Park, Rubin said.

Officers obtained his identity but are still investigating whether he was involved in the vandalism.

Rubin asked tire slashing victims who have not already reported the damage to call Newark Police at 302-366-7111.
