Multiple residents in two south Augusta neighborhoods reported their vehicles damaged had been damaged earlier this week by people who were jumping on them and throwing rocks.
Richmond County sheriff’s Lt. Allan Rollins said the residents in the Pepperidge Neighborhood, off of Peach Orchard Road, and Butler Creek Mobile Home community, off of Phinizy Road, starting started notifying the sheriff’s office early Tuesday after learning discovering that their vehicles had been damaged overnight. Rollins estimates there were about 20 reports submitted.
Some of the victims told police they saw an unknown male jumping on top of vehicles before fleeing from the area in a vehicle. Others reported their windows were smashed by rocks or concrete and some appeared to have been kicked in. Trash cans were also overturned.
Rollins said investigators have received descriptions of the suspects and are working to identify them.
