More Video...

In a Bellevue neighborhood, many found themselves saying "Not again," when they woke up Tuesday morning.

WOWT 6 News has been tracking a vandalism spree and spoke to those living along Bellevue Boulevard who are up in arms.

“It sounded like either breaking glass or somebody hitting wood. I couldn't be specific when I came outside, I didn't even know there was a windshield broke," says Raymond Pariseau, one neighbor.

Lately on Bellevue Boulevard, it's not uncommon to see broken glass along the road. Bellevue Police say vandals have broken windows out of eight vehicles since Friday.

The most recent case was reported at 2:50 a.m. on Tuesday.

Some windows were completely broken out, while others had small holes. Police believe someone may have used something like a BB gun.

Janelle Butler, another neighbor, wants it to stop. “It just is upsetting that you can't leave your vehicle parked in the driveway without something happening to it," she says.

Seeing the broken glass, Butler's son, Pariseau, was reminded of his former life of crime. Pariseau says it didn't work out and urges these criminals to stop. “To me it states, A: Desperation, B: The need for attention, and C: No concept for the law or concept for whoever they may have hurt. I've done it myself, and you don't win from it," says Pariseau.

One incident happened on Bellevue Boulevard North where we also found Travis Cavender. He said he came out Saturday morning to find his driver side window completely smashed. Cavender said, "First I was wondering if anything was stolen. I was wondering why would someone do this. I haven't done anything to anybody. I just was one of the unlucky ones who happened to park my car in the street."

Bellevue Police say vandals also hit five vehicles over the weekend on Main Street. Most of the damage there was broken mirrors, believed to be caused by a blunt object.

There were also two reports of vandalism on Warren Street.

All of them make a total of 15 reports.
