A Brentwood resident claims he is being harassed by juveniles who on 4-occassions this month has been vandalized. He and others have the incidents on video but say police have not done enough to stop it.
Mark Valencia who has captured video says it all began on July 3 where a red Mustang was caught on video and teenagers got out of the vehicle and they placed an m80 in a bag and it exploded on his porch.
“We have lived in Brentwood our whole lives, my wife and I went to high school here and are longtime residents, I don’t know these people I am not going to confront them so I called the cops, they couldn’t do much and assumed they wouldn’t come back,” explained Valencia.
Since then, he has captured three more incidents on video which captured teenagers in a black Charger.
After posting video and photographs on social media, others around Brentwood began sharing it. Others have also stepped up saying they were also victims.
“This is unacceptable. People have been reaching out trying to catch these kids,” explained Valencia. “After the third time, people were sitting on videos and began sharing them. It appears there are up to 7-teenagers who hit another home in the area. The neighbors sat on the video and then shared it. These kids are terrorizing the entire city.
He says the police department should be doing more to help residents who are being terrorized by teenagers. He says that other people have come forward with similar run-ins with these teenagers and police haven’t done enough.
“I am getting more support from complete strangers wanting to stake out which is more positive than from the police department. It’s 3-4 am in the morning, its quiet, and you can’t catch a Challenger and red Mustang?” said Valencia.
According to Valencia, at least 7-homes that have been egged all over Brentwood under similar circumstances with video now being shared.
“I am so exhausted, I am tired and I am paranoid. Its not right they are getting away with this, they hit my house and then they hit several other homes,” said Valencia. “Police need to step up and not let these kids get away with and we need to take back our community before it progresses to something worse. I just want it to stop.”
He hopes by posting the video, either the police will catch the juveniles in action or parents of will see the video and the harassment will stop.
The Social Media Post by Mark Valencia:
- 1) 7/3/17 11:45pm m80 on porch
- 2) 7/9 at 3:45am egging of home and vehicles
- 3) 7/ 11 9pm caught someone staking out my house and now
- 4) 7/20 3:54am another egging.
I have called the police all 4 times and unfortunately not much support from them on this. It’s time that WE catch these individuals and press any charges that WE can or towards their parents; I am fed up. This is bulls#%*
Suspected vehicles are the following older white explorer or chevy, new challenger blacked out with tinted windows, blacked out rims and a newer 2006 or up red mustang with hood scoop. Look at my other posts and look at the kids in the video. One is wearing glasses and definitely has a baseball throw. He would have friends with a red mustang , black challenger or white older explorer. Turn them in before they get hurt by some homeowner as I’m not the only one looking for them.
I have spoken to about 5 different homeowners that have been hit by the same vehicles and suspects. You can bet a Class Action Lawsuit isn’t too far from our minds. Enough is enough.
Please Share especially to any baseball coaches.
