Salt Lake City Police said they’ve received multiple reports of vandalism in one Salt Lake City neighborhood after rocks were thrown at several homes Monday night.
Homes in the area of 1900 East and 1500 South had windows cracked and completely smashed through with rocks.
“It’s just mind blowing. I cannot understand why. What’s the motive behind it?” said Massoud Housseinali of his cracked window.

It was around 7 p.m. Monday when Housseinali said something strange happened at his home on Bryan Ave.
“We heard a really loud noise,” he said. “We came upstairs, looked around, but we couldn’t quite figure out what’s going on.”
Then, this morning, Housseinali said they “woke up only to find that the rock was thrown at the window.”
Housseinali is a new homeowner. He’s not sure how much the window will cost to repair.
“This is our first home,” he said. “We just bought it like three months ago, so we have no idea the costs or the expenses that it might have. It’s just like unfortunate, you know.”
Housseinali filed a police report, as did another family 2News spoke with on a street nearby. They said they were quoted $370 dollars to repair this window, which was fully smashed through. They said if anyone had been sitting in the room when it happened they would have been hurt.
For Deb Penney on Kensington, she knew something was wrong when she got home and her house was cold.

“I found both panes of glass broken and a rock on the floor,” Penney said.
When 2News caught up with Penney Tuesday morning, she was having the window looked at.
“It’s kind of creepy actually,” Penney said. “It’s also frustrating because it’s going to cost some money to get it fixed.”
Salt Lake City police took several reports of vandalism in the neighborhood from Monday night.
While they look into it, Housseinali said he is worried something like this could happen again.
“We have a camera here, we are going to install more cameras and get more security in place,” he said. “That’s the only thing we can do at this point.”
