Chief John Dunn said the suspect is a white male, approximately 5’8” to 6’ tall. He has a medium build with facial hair and glasses. The suspect may have suffered a hand injury.

The acts of vandalism occurred late Saturday night and after midnight on Sunday in the area of the Kenberma shopping district, Nantasket Avenue, Newport Road, and Touraine Avenue.

At approximately 12:15 a.m. on Sunday, Hull Police responded to a report of an alarm at the EZ Smoke Shop on Nantasket Avenue.

Upon arrival, officers observed two storefronts that had smashed windows. The officers located and followed a trail of blood drops that continued down the sidewalk toward other businesses.

Officers discovered several other businesses and vehicles that had broken windows, including the post office, Santander Bank, and Weinberg’s Bakery.

A short time later, police received a call about a vehicle that was damaged on Touraine Avenue. A SUV parked in a driveway of a home had one of its side mirrors broken off.

As officers searched the area, two more vehicles were found vandalized on Touraine Avenue. A Newport Road vehicle had a side mirror broken off.

In total, there were 12 acts of vandalism with an estimated $5,000 worth of damage.

Five storefront windows and doors were broken, along with damage done to seven motor vehicles.

Blood on the broken glass was collected from the scene and detectives are reviewing video footage from the area. No items are known to have been stolen from the victims.
