WYANDOTTE, Mich. – Neighbors in a part of Wyandotte have been taking extra precautions with their cars after more than two dozen vehicles were vandalized in the span of just a few days.

All the cars were parked between Oak Street and Alkali Street, west of Biddle Avenue and east of the railroad tracks.

Deputy police chief Archie Hamilton said Tuesday morning they received only about 4 complaints of keyed cars.

“It wasn’t just a soft scratch, it was a deep gouge and did extensive damage to these vehicles,” said Hamilton. “Then the next day, that’s when all the tire slashes came in. So it’s pretty clear that this person went back out the next night and just started stabbing tires.”

Wyandotte police have taken someone into custody for all of the incidents.
