I am confused by the following incident:

July 19 10:21 PM: There was a report from a resident of Grand Street that at sometime overnight someone had damaged her friend’s car by stomping on the hood while it was parked on the street. The matter is under investigation.

how did the person know that “someone had stomped” on the hood of the car unless they witnessed it? and if they witnessed it, why not call police right then? they are only around the corner. also, how did the caller know that it happened overnight if they waited until after 10 PM at night to report it? also stomping on a car hood to do that kind of damage would cause a huge amount of noise, no one else on the entire street saw or heard that kind of activity going on? it all seems very odd…

maybe something fell on the friend’s car and some nice person walking her dog removed it for them, like neighbors sometimes do. or maybe a meteor fell on it and disintegrated on impact. or maybe an alien spaceship shot a phazer gun at it thinking it was a hostile vessel.

weird one….
