Police: Someone Throwing Rocks Off Wayne Overpass

Six incidents have taken place on West Wayne Avenue.

The Radnor Township Police Department is looking for some who has been throwing rocks at cars from the Radnor Trail overpass on West Wayne Avenue.

Six incidents have taken place since Christmas Day; two of them were on Christmas.

The rocks have caused some damage to cars, but miraculously there have been no injuries, said superintendent of police William Colarulo. When rocks are thrown at cars, "Someone can easily lose control," he said.

To report information on these crimes, call 911 or the anonymous tip line at 610-687-8851.

The incidents took place on December 25 at 10:48 p.m. and 10:59 p.m., December 31 at 10:46 a.m., January 1 at 7:51 p.m., January 6 at 8:30 p.m., and February 4 at 3:12 p.m.

About 10 years ago someone threw a rock at my wife when she was driving my Porsche Covt. It tore a hole in the top, luckily she was not hurt, it could have been the windshield! $3000 later (luckily I was fully insured) I had a new top and the police actually caught him, he was a mentally "challenged" person. One of these days one of these people/kids will kill someone unless they fence off these bridges.

Installing a temporary camera is so easy. Better to catch these kids before they really hurt someone and change lives forever, including their own.

No name, if you're certain these boys did it, why aren't YOU calling the tip line instead of plastering names of minors on a public website?

Big mistake to accuse these minors of any wrongdoing like this - especially in a public forum. I suggest you look up the meaning of the word LIBEL and then tell your mom to get an attorney because you are going to need one very soon.

Sam, the deleted comment is still on the front page.

Ernie, that's a good idea.

Just to clarify a point made by "just wondering", libel only applies if the accusations are false. If they are true there is no libel. I'm not supporting or rejecting the allegations, merely pointing out the use of the world libel shouldn't be thrown around.

Really? I was not throwing anything - perhaps you should worry more about the names of minors being broadcast as participating in criminal acts without any proof. As far as the word libel -- I stand by it as it fits............

Call me "Sherlock Holmes", but unless we are talking about a 'mental defective' the only people who normally and repeatedly throw rocks at cars for sport, would be kids. Consider: 1) Kids by-in-large tend to commit this type of mischief and vandalism. 2) Kids (not being mobile like an adult with an automobile) tend to do so within a very small radius of their own neighborhood - yet, not on their specific street. 3) When one draws a correlation between the area residence of the already well-know 'little thugs" who have been pulling numerous disruptive and malicious 'hi-jinx' while on their bicycles in and around Wayne, and then look at the immediate neighborhood local to the over-pass in question, you end end up looking at,... lo and be-hold,... the same kids. Isn't funny how it is just like on ACTION NEWS,... same guys every time. I had no awareness of this 'Throwing Rocks at Range Rovers' situation prior to today, yet, I observed the "little thugs" in Wayne all through the summer, and all the angry, purposefully 'in-your-face' non-sense they delighted in bringing to our community, and then speeding off on their bikes under the overpass on West Wayne Ave,... and home. So the fact that when the colder weather set-in, the vandalism and non-sense localizes closer to where they these "little thugs" live, is no surprise.
