Man damages Fresno Police cars, arrested on felony vandalism charges, police say


A man was arrested Tuesday after the Fresno Police Department said he vandalized multiple police cars.

Around 9 a.m., a witness reported seeing a man attacking several police cars in the parking lot of the Southeast Police District station at Cedar and Heaton avenues.

The suspect walked away before officers got to the parking lot. 

Officers found the man nearby at Cedar and Butler avenues.

Police say he admitted to vanalizing the vehicles, but he didn’t say why.

He attacked three vehicles, and two sustained damage and will have to be repaired before they’re used, police said. Two vehicles had their passenger side view mirrors broken, and mirrors are required for a vehicle to be cleared for use.
