Apparent Tire Slasher Wreaks Havoc Across Concord Neighborhood

Concord police are asking the public to hand over surveillance footage in hopes of spotting the person apparently responsible for slashing tires of over 20 vehicles.

The cars, which were parked along Dianda Drive, Armand Drive and Denkinger Court, were believed to be damaged between 9 p.m. Saturday and 7 a.m. Sunday, according to the Concord Police Department.

William Robinson was one of more than 20 victims. Both of his vehicles were hit, totaling more than $400 in damage. Add to that lost wages.

"I just got hired on for Uber about three weeks ago, so that's my full-time gig," Robinson said. "I went a whole day without making anything, and now I gotta pay for new tires."

A dozen victims went to the Big O Tires store in Concord. Manager Erik Riemann tried to help victims with a discount where he can but says there's no fixing a tire punctured on the sidewall.

"The punctures are pretty uniform," he said. "If I had to guess, they were probably made by a large knife."

Police do not have a motive or any other information at this time. They are asking homeowners to review surveillance footage and pass along any helpful video that could aid in the investigation.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Officer Daniel Beringer at daniel.beringer@cityofconcord.org.
