BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- A number of vehicles were vandalized and had tires slashed in Dorchester overnight, stunning and angering longtime residents of the Boston neighborhood.
In many cases all four tires were damaged, forcing residents to call for a flatbed or change the tires right on the street. "How heartless can you be to do that?" one resident told WBZ NewsRadio 1030's Carl Stevens, questioning her decision to settle in the neighborhood. "And to so many people. It's just insane. It makes you want to move, you know?"

The vandal's efforts could be seen on Speedwell Street, Topliff Street, and others around the neighborhood. "This is ludicrous," complained another resident "It's crazy because they disrupted so many people's lives this morning. Children could not go to school this morning because the parents couldn't drop them off. Kids couldn't get to the babysitter because the parents gotta go to work and they have no car."
