Police Increase Patrols Near Durham Freeway
Durham police are stepping up patrols near the Durham Freeway after four cars were hit from above with rocks this week.Posted — Updated
The incidents all occurred during peak traffic times in the evening, said Cpl. David Addison of teh Durham Police Department.
"Someone was standing overtop the Briggs Avenue Bridge and was throwing rocks down on vehicles," Addison said.
No one was hurt, but police are concerned.
"It could actually distract someone driving and cause an accident, or it could hurt someone inside a vehicle," Addison said.
Police said they are not sure if one person is responsible or a group of people. Because it now stays lighter later, investigators believe someone saw who did it.
"This is not something that qualifies as a prank," Addison said. "It's actually a crime."
