Vandals cause $3K in damage at Louisville barber shop

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The owner and employees of a Louisville barbershop are calling the acts of a vandal sheer stupidity after someone threw rocks through the windows and door of the business three times in one week.

You can talk about almost anything at the barber, but at the Young City Barbershop off Cane Run road, there's one big boarded up elephant in the room that customer Jequan Owens and everybody else wants to avoid.

The owner says the first time a rock came crashing through his front window, he thought it was kids or a random act; two days later another rock was thrown through the front door, so he brought a security camera, and the next incident was captured on video.

The footage shows someone getting out of a car in front of the business, tossing a rock through the front door, and driving away. That happened on Aug. 18; the vandals struck twice before that: once on Aug. 11 and again on Aug. 13.

"It's crazy, I just couldn't fathom it," said Owens. I've been coming here like four or five years, and I've never seen this happen or seen the barbers have any problems with customers or anything like that so it was really surprising.

Marian Dean, who owns the Bobble Heads Beauty Salon next door to the barbershop says she has never had any problems with vandals.

Now she says business owners are watching each others' backs.

"I was shocked just to see this incident occur," Owens said.

Police say the suspect is likely targeting Young City because other business were spared. Oddly enough, nothing was ever taken from the barbershop.

The suspect is wearing a mask in the surveillance video, but police are still asking for the public's help.

"If anyone see the video recognizes the person or the car, we look for them to give us a call and let us know," said LMPD Lt. Dale Massey."

The owners and employees of Young City believe someone is trying to scare them so they will move out of the space. They say they don't know who it is, but the vandal cudeep, causingng about $3,000 in damage.

Anyone with information is asked to call the LMPD crime tipline at 502-574-LMPD.
