The 76th Precinct was informed and a police car was on the scene.
When I walked past 20 minutes later, a policewoman was issuing a parking ticket to the Mini Cooper above because of Alternate Side Parking. I stopped to talk to the officer, pointed to the flat tire and explained about the slashing. "Oh, I know about it." I suggested that maybe, it was rather cruel to give the owner a ticket under the circumstance. She hesitated for a second but then said that since she had already started filling out the ticket, she needed to finish writing it.
In any case, if you are the owner of the blue Cooper, please feel free to use my photos to fight the ticket.

Creep Slashes Tires Of Multiple Cars Parked Along Carroll Park, But Police Hands Out Parking Ticket Anyway
Last night, some creep slashed the tires of quite a few cars which were parked on along Carroll Park. A President Street resident reported that at least 10 cars on either side of the block between Court and President Streets has flat tires. Later reports suggested that more cars on the Court and Carroll Street sides of the park were also attacked.
