Neighbors in Cambridge Wake Up to Damaged Cars Last Weekend

Posted: Updated:

CAMBRIDGE, Md. - Ryan Stewart has been a car owner for just about a year. That's why his red Ford Fiesta means so much to him.

"This is how I visit friends," Stewart said. "This is how I go to and from work like it's basically my livelihood."

So you can imagine the shock Stewart felt when he woke up to find the left side of his car's tires slashed.

"Well the first thing I thought was someone had let the air out of my tires," Stewart said.

But police told him someone had slashed them.

"I've heard about it before but I've never seen it personally done like they did me," Stewart said.

It was personal for other neighbors too.

Cambridge Police say at least 21 other vehicles in the area were either keyed or had tires slashed. That cost car owners nearly $4,500 in damages.

"Who would have done this and why?" Stewart said with a shake of his head.

Police say they have a couple leads but, so far, no suspects.

Other neighbors say some kids riding on bikes could be the culprits. Jeffrey Robinson says those kids should have a curfew.


"Eighteen and under there should be a curfew," Stewart said. "It's safe than sorry."

As for Stewart, his tires were an easy fix, but a big inconvenience. 

"Why would you attack something that someone worked hard for and someone puts the money into?" he asked.

The crimes mostly took place along Glasgow Street, Glenburn Avenue, Willis Street, and West End Avenue, according to Cambridge Police.

Cambridge Police are asking people to stay vigilant and to report any suspicious activity in the area right away.
