W-B Police Seek Man Wanted For Smashing Windshield

March 26, 2019

WILKES-BARRE — City police are trying to identify a man who jumped on the hood of a car of a Heights-section home and smashed the windshield Monday afternoon.

The incident took place around 3:30 p.m. on Custer Street, and was witnessed by a neighbor, police said. The neighbor told the man he should take responsibility for his actions and wait for the police, prompting the man to say, “(Expletive) you and the police,” according to investigators.

The vandal then continued walking north on Custer Street and turned right on Coal Street, police said.

The man was described as wearing tight dark jeans and a short bomber jacket with patches on it. A review of surveillance footage at the Sherman Hills Apartments showed the man entering Building 328 a short time after the incident was reported, police said.

Anyone with information on the man’s identity is asked to call police at 570-826-8106.
