East Sacramento Rock Thrower Follow Up

Below is a reprint of a Fox 40 story which gives more information about the vandal. The link to the information didn’t come through on my last post.

SACRAMENTO-

Van Hong runs Sacramento Bagel on H St in East Sacramento 7 days a week, which is why he was surprised one morning when the windows of his business were shattered. He was even more surprised when it happened a second time. When it happened a 3rd time, however, he was outraged.

“This was all shattered. These two windows also broke. Please stop,” said Hong.

At $400 a window, Hong tells FOX40 he had to replace four of them on three separate occasions, and he believes the person responsible is someone many local business owners are calling the “East Sac Rock-Thrower.”

The person typically doesn’t rob, burglarize or steal anything, according to business owners.

“It usually happens at night, we close at night,” Hong added. “I just wonder why.”

Sacramento Police confirm there are four businesses that have recently been vandalized by someone tossing rocks the size of golf balls.

Some windows have been hit by baseballs, too. JayJay Art Gallery near Elvas Avenue was hit, along with Cuvee Salon on H Street, but these aren’t first time occurrences Several businesses including Roxie’s Deli fast food and liquor stores tell FOX40 they too have had their windows vandalized.

A spokesperson confirmed Sunday that investigators have not made any arrests on the recent vandalism complaints.

If you have any information, you are urged to contact the Sacramento Police Department at (916) 264-5471, or Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP. You can also text in a tip to 274637 (CRIMES) and enter SACTIP followed by the tip information.
