About 70 people had their vehicle tires slashed overnight and the number of those affected could continue to rise as Colorado Springs police investigate what looks to be an indiscriminate crime.

Officers discovered many vehicles with slashed tires, around 4:30 a.m. Saturday morning, in the area of 2700 Maroon Bells Avenue. The reporting party said a person was going through the neighborhood slashing tires, but police do not have a suspect or suspects at this time, said Sgt. Darrin Abbink.

Abbink said police are compiling the number of tires, cars and people affected.

"Who knows how high that number will go at this point," he said. "There's not rhyme or reason to any of it."

At this time, Abbink said, police have little information as to what happened.
