NOPD looking for suspect who slashed tires on 3 police vehicles in the French Quarter

NEW ORLEANS – The NOPD is looking for a man who slashed the tires of two NOPD vehicles and a Louisiana State Police vehicle on Halloween night.

The unidentified man was recorded on surveillance video taking a knife out of his pocket and slashing the rear tire of a NOPD vehicle in the 400 block of Royal Street around 2:45 a.m. on October 31.

The same man slashed the front tire of a second NOPD vehicle soon after before running toward the river in the 600 block of St. Louis Street, according to the NOPD.

The suspect is also thought to have slashed a tire on a marked State Police unit around the time he targeted the NOPD vehicles.
