A number of vehicles in Pentagon City were discovered with their tires slashed on New Year’s Day.
According to police, an unknown vandal or vandals slashed tires on six vehicles in the 400 block of Army Navy Drive between 5:00 a.m. and 8:50 a.m. on Wednesday. There is no suspect description.
This is the latest in a string of tire slashing sprees that has plagued Arlington over the past several months. Hall’s Hill was hit twice, first in November when 36 vehicles were affected and again in December when 40 cars were vandalized. In July, police investigated a string of slashed tire incidents on 16 vehicles — mostly Toyota Priuses — in the Cherrydale, Waverly Hills and Barcroft Park neighborhoods. About two weeks later, in August, 10 vehicle owners found their tires slashed in the Arlington View neighborhood.
Thus far, police have not arrested any suspects in any of the tire slashing incidents.
Anyone who may have seen suspicious activity or who may have information about the vandalism incidents is asked to call the police non-emergency number at 703-558-2222.
