Several windows smashed by rocks in the Salt Lake City neighborhood

Salt Lake City Police said they received several reports of vandalism in a Salt Lake City neighborhood after stones were thrown at several homes on Monday evening.

Houses around 1900 East and 1500 South had windows that were cracked and completely shattered by stones.

“It’s just mind-blowing. I can’t understand why. What is the motive behind this? Massoud Housseinali said of his cracked glass.

It was around 7 p.m. on Monday when Housseinali said something strange had happened at his home on Bryan Ave.

“We heard a very loud noise,” he said. “We went upstairs, looked around, but couldn’t quite figure out what was going on.”

Then this morning, Housseinali said that they “woke up only to find that the stone had been thrown at the window”.

Coqueinali is a new owner. He doesn’t know how much it will cost to repair the window.

“This is our first home,” he said. “We just bought it about three months ago, so we have no idea what costs or expenses it might have. It’s just like miserable, you know.”

Coverinali filed a police report, as did another family 2News spoke to on a nearby street. They said they were given $ 370 to fix that window, which was completely shattered. They said if anyone had been sitting in the room by the time this happened they would have been injured.

For Deb Penney in Kensington, she knew something was wrong when she got home and her house was cold.

“I found the two broken windows and a rock on the floor,” Penney said.

When 2News caught up with Penney on Tuesday morning, she was looking out the window.

“It’s a little scary actually,” Penney said. “It’s also frustrating because it’s going to cost money to get it fixed.”

Salt Lake City Police gathered several reports of vandalism in the neighborhood Monday evening.

While they are considering the matter, Housseinali said he was concerned that something like this could happen again.

“We have a camera here, we are going to install more cameras and put in place more security,” he said. “It’s the only thing we can do at this point.”
