Alexander Anderson, 17, Callium Docherty, 17, and Kevin Jefferson, 18, acting together, were charged with doing $2,164 worth of damage to a 2015 Chevy Equinox in the 1100 block of Terrance Drive in Richmond Heights, on February 10.
Docherty said the damage was done because Anderson and the victim’s daughter had been “fighting” and Anderson wanted to “get back at her,” according to records. The car was owned by the victim’s employer.
According to the police record, three of the car’s tires were punctured, black paint was sprayed on the front bumper, headlights, hood, windshield, driver’s side windows and doors, rear hatchback and windshield, and rear license plate. Inside the car the driver’s side door panel and seat had been painted, and an oily chemical substance (WD-40) sprayed on the dashboard, steering wheel, center console and elsewhere.
Other cars in the vicinity were sprayed with black paint, but not to the same degree.
The defendants were identified as suspects because of conflicts with the victim’s daughter, who attends school with them.
