Councilman Chaim Deutsch stated that this is extremely disturbing, and he is working closely with detectives as they are working thru the many videos of the area. Police commanders assured community leaders that at this point all signs indicate that the tire slashings are not a bias incident, and anyone with information or experienced vandalism should call the 61 Pct. detective squad at 718-627-6620.
