SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- Ocean Beach residents are on the lookout for a car vandal - a vandal who caused thousands of dollars in damage after dousing vehicles with paint thinner. 
 
Terisa Harju says someone threw paint thinner or a solvent of some kind all over her and her fiancé's vehicles. Both were parked in their driveway along West Point Loma Boulevard. 
 
“I called my fiancé and I said ‘come down here, both of our vehicles have been vandalized,'" Harju said. "He was hosing it off and the paint just started coming off. I took it through the car wash, and you go through like the dryer part, I could see little black flakes of paint like flying through the air."
 
Harju says she has no idea who would have done something like this. She filed a police report and hopes anyone with information reports it. 
 
“It’s just a really stressful day, a really stressful day," she said. "It really bums me out and makes me sad.”
