MARBLEHEAD — The police department is asking for help in identifying a suspect who has vandalized the same home twice in one week.
The suspect threw large granite rocks through the same window located on the second floor of a home in the area of Green, Mugford, and Elm Streets. The first incident occurred shortly after midnight on July 30 and the second at 2:45 a.m. on Aug. 2, according to Detective Lieutenant Sean Sweeney.
In the first surveillance video, two suspects can be seen roaming around the street directly in front of the house, one holding a rock in his hand. The second video shows one suspect firing directly at the window.
After the second incident, the homeowners were able to describe the suspects and told responding police officers that they ran toward Green Street, according to the police report. The vandalized window was to the bedroom of the homeowner’s daughter, who woke up concerned because this is the second incident in a three-day span.
“These are felony crimes because of the damage to property but even more, they are unnerving to the residents, especially when it wakes them from a sound sleep,” the MPD said in a statement on their Facebook page.
Sweeney asks that anyone who may have information pertaining to the incident or the suspect(s) please call the Marblehead Police Detectives at 781-631-1212.
