Six tires were slashed around 9:30 p.m. Sunday by an individual police detective sergeant Lee Hollatz described as a younger male or teenager. The activity was caught on a video surveillance camera outside of city hall.

Though police have no suspects at this time, Hollatz said the young man in the video appears to be wearing a hood and riding a bicycle. Police are asking that anyone who saw something suspicious downtown Sunday contact the police department, 651-280-6700.

Sergeant Jim Murphy, who responded to the call, said the suspect used a sharp instrument to damage the tires. The vehicles included one Durango used by the parks and recreation department and four pick-up trucks, all of which were parked in the back lot at city hall.

Preliminary damage estimates range from $2,500 to $5,000, Hollatz said.
