Six vehicles had their tires punctured while parked outside the Bigelow-Reed House at 23 Williams Drive this weekend, and Public Safety (PS) is working to determine if this was part of a larger attack on vehicles throughout Delaware. “We just need to determine if it’s isolated to campus – and that’s going to be our investigation if that’s the case,” said Investigator Richard Morman. “If it’s much wider, wide range like it appears it is then we’ll collaborate with the Delaware Police on their investigation. Obviously if it happened all over the city it could just be a random act; if it happened just here on campus it could be isolated.” “We’re waiting to hear back whether this is a city wide issue,” said PS Director Robert Wood. According to the incident report, the first case was discovered around 2 p.m. on August 31, at which time five other cases were found by responding PS officers. The damage is believed to have occurred between 3:30 p.m. August 30 and 1:45 p.m. August 31. Morman said that while he initially thought that the tire puncturing was targeted, the reports of similar incidents around town led him away from that. “There was no commonality between them (the vehicles),” he said, offering the example that they didn’t all have stickers which would suggest the owners were members of the same fraternity. Public Safety hasn’t determined any possible suspects yet, according to Wood. “We can share that we don’t have any,” he said. Morman added that they don’t know if the perpetrator or perpetrators were University students or Delaware residents. “Hopefully that’s to be determined,” he said.
