    Arlington County Police are looking for a serial vandal, believed to have slashed 36 tires overnight Monday.

    It happened along North Dinwiddie Street and Culpepper Street. One woman told News4 two of her cars were vandalized.

    "It's frustrating. You get up in the morning you get ready to go to work and you find your... tires are slashed and you can't go anywhere," Malalai Mehrebi said.

    Octavio Aspillaga also had his tire slashed. What's more, he said this has happened several times in the past two years.

    "This is the 5th time they got me," Aspillaga said. "I hope they catch him so he doesn't slash anymore tires."

    Malalai wants to see the police pass by more often.

    "Hopefully the police will do something about it," she said.
