New London — Police have charged a 14-year-old boy they believe was involved in slashing tires on 25 vehicles Sunday night and damaging more tires Monday night in New London.

The boy, who has not been identified because he is a minor, was issued a summons on a charge of third-degree criminal mischief Monday night, city police said.

At 11:58 p.m. Sunday, a person called police to report slashed tires on a vehicle near 187 Huntington St. When officers arrived, they found that tires had been slashed on 24 other vehicles parked on Prospect, Federal, Broad and Hempstead streets, police said.

The boy was arrested about 10:15 p.m. Monday as officers were investigating another incident of tires being damaged in the area of Williams and Broad streets, police said. The investigation was ongoing.
