SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Authorities reached out to the public Friday for help in identifying whoever has been hurling or shooting things at moving cars in Mission Bay Park in recent months, causing extensive property damage along with some injuries.

On at least eight nights since November, someone has thrown or shot unidentified objects or projectiles at vehicles traveling in the area of Ingraham Street and West Mission Bay Drive, just west of SeaWorld San Diego, according to police.

The targeted cars sustained damages, including dented bodies and broken windshields, totaling between $300 and $5,000 each, officials said. Two drivers suffered minor cuts from flying glass.

Since the crimes have taken place in the late evening or early morning on dark stretches of roadway, none of the victims has been able to provide a description of the responsible vandal or vandals.

Anyone with information about any of the incidents is asked to call San Diego County Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477 or contact the agency online at Tipsters may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
