Tires slashed in Ashland neighborhood

Ashland, Ore. —  A series of tire slashings in a quiet Ashland neighborhood leaves ten cars damaged.

Ashland Police is calling it a ‘random act’ they don’t have any suspects or even any leads at this point. But it’s the surrounding community that’s left shocked.

“I really like this area a lot. It’s got the really nice nature, the train going by is fun and the co-op is nearby, so it’s a good little area,” Mig Windows said. Windows lives just blocks away from where the vandalism occurred.

A good little area – that was targeted by vandals on Sunday night.

“Hearing about this is pretty upsetting, that somebody’s slashing tires,” Windows said.

Ten cars had their tires slashed. The railroad district is known for being a quiet neighborhood, which is why the act of vandalism is so confusing.

“It’s pretty strange considering this is a pretty safe neighborhood for the most part,” Windows said.

That’s something residents can agree with.

“Most of the time, I don’t lock my car.”

But the recent acts of crime isn’t scaring away residents. Even as police acknowledge they don’t have any suspects or leads.

“I hope that whatever’s happening, just passes quickly. That they find who’s doing it and tell them – hey, knock it off,” Windows said.

If you have any information on the incident, specifically between 7:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. You’re asked to call the Ashland Police Department.
