Vandals smash windows on dozens of cars on Westlake Avenue North

Seattle police say the windows on dozens of cars were smashed overnight on Westlake Avenue North.

The cars were parked in the 2000 block of Westlake Avenue North when they were vandalized by two men, police said. Police were first alerted to the vandalism spree when a resident dialed 911 around 3 a.m. to report seeing two men armed with a baseball bat and a crowbar smashing windows in the large parking lot near China Harbor restaurant

Officers arrived less than 10 minutes after the 911 call, but the men had already taken off in a white Pontiac Trans Am, according to a news release.

Officers found shattered windows on at least 34 vehicles. Police believe the man may have also stolen items from many of the vehicles.

A witness told officers that the men were carrying skateboards. One man is described as wearing a hat, gray sweatshirt and khaki pants. The second suspect was reportedly dressed in a black sweatshirt and baggy black shorts, police said.

Police are asking that anyone with information, or whose car was broken into, to call 911.
