NEWARK -- Police are asking the public for help in finding a group of vandals who smashed the windows of more than a dozen cars in a residential neighborhood just west of Musick Park over the weekend.

Officers were dispatched at 10:44 p.m. on Sunday to Reina Place off McLaughlin Avenue after residents dialed 911 to report a group of males smashing vehicle windows with baseball bats and sticks, Cmdr. Mike Carroll said.

The suspects, who wore dark clothing with hoods, had run off by the time officers arrived.

Police say the group smashed out 22 windows of 13 vehicles.

Someone also knocked a motorcycle over, Carroll said.

Anyone with information about this incident can call police at 510-578-4237 or at the anonymous tip line at 510-578-4965.
