Nutley: Vandals Throw Rocks at Several Passing Cars Along Kingsland
Group of youths seen by multiple witnesses
Nutley police received several reports last week of rocks being thrown into the street and at passing cars.
Around 7:20 on Feb. 4, a witness said he saw two males throwing rocks near Kenzel Avenue and Kingsland Street. About an hour later, a motorist traveling on Kingsland told police someone threw a rock at the vehicle’s windshield, cracking it.
On Feb. 6, three more motorists reported having their cars struck by rocks as they travelled on Kingsland. In the first incident, which occurred around 6 pm, the driver pulled over after the car was struck by a rock. The victim told police three or four male youths were seen in the bushes and told the victim they were playing a game of “manhunt.” Yet another motorist traveling on Kingsland near Kenzel Avenue said a side rear window of the vehicle was shattered, and a few hours later, around 8:30 pm, police returned to the area after yet another vehicle’s window was smashed.
No suspects were arrested and the incidents remain under investigation.
