Danbury Police are investigating a man suspected of stealing a car and slashing the tires on other vehicles yesterday morning. Police responded to a Grand Street home after a man reported that he turned his SUV on in the driveway to warm up and waited for the bus with his children.
The suspect, a white man in his late 30s to early 40s, open the driver side door and got in. The victim confronted the suspect, but jumped out of the way of the accelerating vehicle while it left the driveway.
Two other residents said the same white male, 5'8" to 5'9", wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, slashed their tires.
The incident started on Lake Avenue around 9am. The suspect got on the highway at exit 4. Police then contacted their New York counterparts about the suspect.
The case is under investigation.
