South-side neighborhood on alert after rash of vandalism

INDIANAPOLIS - Indianapolis police are warning a south-side area to keep an eye on vehicles and be careful where they’re parked after half a dozen cars were vandalized at an apartment complex.

All the incidents happened in a neighborhood near Stop 11 Road and Madison Avenue on the far south side. The apartment complex is just southeast of that intersection. Some of the vandalism was reported on Punto Alto Court (see map below) and surrounding streets in that apartment complex.

Residents said it happened in a short span of time Tuesday morning, and whoever did it worked fast.

Indianapolis police are still looking for those responsible and are also investigating several other acts of vandalism in the area over the last week.
