Who’s throwing rocks at cars?

Mounties are concerned after receiving at least three reports of objects being thrown at moving vehicles.

“People in the vehicle, including children, can be injured by the flying objects. This has potential for serious injury and this behaviour has to stop,” said RCMP Cpl. Poppy Hallam.

On Feb. 5, at 4:16 p.m., police responded to a complaint at the Island Highway and Perkins Road. The caller said a male, wearing a grey hoodie, threw an item at her car as she drove by which cracked her windshield. She pulled over, but the youth ran and was not located by police.

On Sunday, at 7:51 p.m., police attended Dogwood Street, near 9th Avenue, after someone was throwing objects at vehicles from the road side. Officers were unable to find the culprits.

Then on Monday, at 1:30 a.m., police were called to Dogwood and 7th Avenue where a male reported that someone threw a rock at his vehicle as he was driving.

Three males dressed in black were seen fleeing the area.
