Surveillance cameras capture 7 damaging cars at Naperville parking deck – Chicago Tribune
Naperville police on Wednesday continued a search for seven people who were caught by video surveillance cameras damaging four cars in one of the city’s downtown public parking decks.
A reward of up to $1,000 has been posted for information about the woman and six men suspected in the vandalism, according to a Naperville Crime Stoppers release.
The release stated the incident occurred just before 2 a.m. May 8 on the top, open air floor of the parking deck at 75 E. Chicago Ave., at the northeast corner of Chicago Avenue and Washington Street.
Surveillance video cameras filmed the suspects as they ascended the deck’s southwest stairwell. The stairs led to the top floor parking area, where the damage was done.
The suspects began “to jump onto four different vehicles, causing major damage to the body panels (and) breaking the rear window on one of the vehicles,” the release said.
The second of two videos posted to the police department’s Facebook page showed one man walking atop a car from the rear to the front, and being followed by another man jumping from the trunk to the roof to the hood.
In another scene, a man is filmed running atop a car from the front to the rear, while another man leaps and body-slams the car’s trunk area.
The woman “is seen using her phone to capture the incident” on video, according to the release.
Police described the suspects as six black men and a white woman, all of whom appeared to be in their early 20s.
Witnesses to the incident, or those who believe they recognize any of the suspects, were asked to call Naperville Crime Stoppers, at 630-420-6006; or the police investigations division, at 630-420-6666. Callers can remain anonymous.
