Brick-throwing vandal caught on camera smashing windshields

The owner of a Porsche that was vandalized in Venice on Thursday is looking for the brick-wielding woman who was caught on camera.

Video of the attack at Rose and Bernard avenues shows a woman approach a Porsche SUV and throw a brick at it, then pick up the brick and return to her own vehicle, a white SUV.

And it turns out this may not have been the first such incident.

George Frem of Exclusive Motors, who fixed the Porsche’s windshield, told KTLA’s Erin Myers that he’s seen a video that appears to show the same woman using a brick to damage another vehicle.

“It was an aggressive hit on the car, so that’s why I decided to look it up and see if there are any other crimes that are similar to it. Luckily, someone else has footage of her face when she did the same thing,” he said.

That other incident occurred at Camden and La Grange avenues, and footage was shared to the Citizen app.

The Venice victim, Katerina Meyer, said she hopes the brick-thrower is caught.

“She’s obviously targeting nicer vehicles out there, it’s not just random,” she said. “It feels extremely violating, but it’s been fixed, so that’s taken care of. But I really hope that you are able to … find her and prevent her from doing it to anyone else.”

Anyone who recognizes the suspect or has additional information is asked to call the Los Angeles Police Department at 1-877-275-5273.
