Car Vandalized/Set on Fire, S. May St. & West 19th Pl.

Hi all. While I was away for a few weeks for work my automobile was heavily vandalized and set on fire sometime last weekend (most likely Friday night/early Saturday morning). The car was parked legally on the east side of the street just south of S. May St. & W. 19th Place (proximate to La Favorite Market).

Any information would be appreciated. I am a student and have been put in a severe financial crisis as a result of this action.

Many thanks.

  • that's insane!! I am so sorry to hear that.
