New Britain police are looking for the vandals who they believe shot BB pellets through more than a dozen car windows late Monday night into early Tuesday morning.

Residents of Susan Road, Lewis Road, Alexander Road and Country Club Road said their cars are among the vehicles targeted. Police said Tuesday night they suspect the perpetrators vandalized at least 20 cars.

Susan Road resident Jose Rivera said he and his wife both fell victim to the attacks.

"My wife says, 'Yours got hit too.' So, I looked at it and then the neighbor up the street came down and he said he got hit too," Rivera explained. "Right now we’re trying to get it fixed. That’s time consuming and everything else. But as minute as it might seem to that person that did it, we’re going to end up spending a lot of time dealing with it."

It's not the only case of vandalism in recent days. Over the weekend, someone used chunks of pavement or rocks to smash car windows on Russwin Road.

"I woke up in the middle of the night. The dogs were barking. We just heard hollering on the street. I didn’t think anything of it. I just went right back to bed," said Russwin Road resident Darryline Irizarry.

When Juan Lopez discovered at 3 a.m. Tuesday that his truck had been hit too, he had to just cover the glass and head out.

"I can’t miss a day of work and I don’t have another car," said Lopez. "I just scratch my fingers a little trying to clean it up a little but I’m fine. I just, I don’t know why someone did something like that. I hope they catch them because that’s ridiculous."

At this point, police are not sure if the cases are connected. They have not identified any suspects or filed any charges.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
