Cars ransacked, windows smashed near senior apartments

SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Car owners at a senior community in University City woke up to a messy surprise Tuesday morning. 

Louise, who asked 10news not to identity her, went to her SUV which was parked on Kantor Street, and her heart sank.

"I walked to my car and saw that the window had been burst.  It was terrifying," said Louise.

Glass was everywhere and inside her vehicle was another mess.  Her glove compartment had been tossed, her insurance and registration scattered.  Nothing was missing, but Louise is nervous.

"Very afraid of the personal information now they know what address I'm actually at," said Louise.

It appears someone took a bat or something like that to bash the window, before unlocking their passenger door.  Louise is not the only victim.  Nearby there were more vehicles hit, some 14 in all.  The windows on those vehicles were also shattered.  Some items were stolen and the repairs will cost hundreds of dollars for each incident.

"A lot of people on fixed incomes. This is really hurting them, because it is costly to put these windows in these cars," said Louise.

If you have any information on the case, call the San Diego Police Department's Northern Division at 858-552-1700.
