A driver named David parked his car on Lake Shore Avenue near Montana Street in Echo Park over the weekend. The vehicle looked fine when he checked on Sunday night but, on Monday morning, David found his windshield (pictured) had been smashed several times for no apparent reason. He wants to know if others have had similar experiences recently:
“When I came out Monday morning to head to a meeting I found my windshield had been smashed in. It looks like they must have hit it at least three or four times. The side windows were not broken and nothing had been stolen. I’m not really sure what the motivation was behind the incident, but it cost me about $200 to fix it. I’m hoping this is an isolated incident. I have attached a photo of my windshield for you to check out. Has anyone else reported anything similar?”
