    For the second year in a row, someone has slashed a decorative inflatable Santa Claus on a homeowner's lawn in New Hampshire - although this time, it was caught on camera.

    Police said the foot-long-plus slash cut across Santa's body and was reported Dec. 27. The man living at the house in Concord said he installed the surveillance camera because a similar decoration was slashed in 2013.

    On the video, released Monday by police, a man is seen walking from Ridge Road into the front yard to the Santa. He makes a swiping motion with his right hand, cutting the Santa with some type of blade, before walking away.

    The man appears to be wearing a miner's-style headlamp, plus a winter hat, light jacket, and a backpack.
