From Cape Story Neighborhood Watch:
My house that is under construction in the 2200 block of Maple Street (near the bike path) was vandalized last night by 3 high school age youths. A neighbor was on an evening walk after 9:00 pm and had seen them walking around. Then he just happened to be walking nearby our house and heard the loud crash of smashing windows and called 911. He actually chased after them calling out help, help to alert the neighbors. They are most definitely local kids as one had his skateboard with him. They were described as follows: 2 of the boys being tall and thin, and the 3rd boy was shorter than the other two. They smashed two lower windows in the living room from inside the house with a board. Four VA Beach police cruisers responded and searched the property and the neighborhood, but did not find these young vandals.
The fact that this looks to be neighborhood kids is especially concerning. I have two teenagers myself, and if I were reading this and had a high school age son, I would be asking myself “Where was my son last night between 8:30 pm and 10:30 pm”.
This is not a personal safety issue, but it is a nasty bit of vandalism for sure. My guess is that if these kids get away with this they will vandalize others. If anybody has any information as to who might have done this, we would greatly appreciate them coming forward.
Please remember to call 911 if you see a crime in action and call 385-5000, option 1, to report crimes after they have occurred or to report any suspicious activity. Also, please call or email the NW Coordinator so crime reports and suspicious activities can be shared with all of our residents.
