WESTFIELD, Ind. – Police are searching for a man caught on camera throwing a brick at Westfield home.
Police responded to a vandalism report at the home in the Oak Manor development around 1 p.m. last Monday.
Still images from home surveillance footage shows a man armed with a brick in his hand.
Investigators tell CBS4, the man pulled the brick out of the trunk of his car, walked up to the home and threw it at the front door. The man allegedly threw the brick just once, but it was enough to do damage.
“We definitely want to have a chat with this guy and find out what he had planned for whatever it was that day,” said Sgt. Robert Dine.
The suspect’s car is described as a 2013 or 2014 black Mercedes C Class Sedan.
“We have no idea what his intentions were. Nobody from the neighborhood seemed to recognize him or the vehicle, at this point we just don’t know,” said Sgt. Dine.
If you look closely, it appears the suspect has a sidekick waiting for him inside his car.
“You can see a fluffy white little dog. Somebody might know somebody with a white little fluffy dog that drives a black Mercedes C class,” said Sgt. Dine.
So far, this is the only brick throwing vandalism report Westfield police have received. Detectives are still trying to figure out why this whether the suspect chose this home randomly or if he had a reason. Most likely, the suspect didn’t realize his actions were being recorded.
“It’s a very good picture; surely somebody has to recognize him. We’re asking for assistance if anyone knows who that is to give us a call,” said Sgt. Dine.
