Norwalk police are investigating two incidents of mailbox vandalism that happened within close proximity of each other Friday night.
On Saturday afternoon, a West Willard Avenue resident reported someone broke her mailbox post and damaged her mailbox sometime Friday night.
The post had already been pulled out of the ground and replaced prior to an officer's arrival. The broken post was laying nearby and photographed. The mail box itself had a small dent on one side, but was otherwise still usable. There was no paint transfer and it appeared the damage was caused by someone striking the mailbox with a baseball bat or other such object.
Meanwhile, a Glover Avenue resident reported his mailbox also was damaged Friday night. It was partially smashed from the side near the front opening of the box. The post the mailbox was attached to was still intact, but had taken a hit from a blunt object recently, as the ground around it was moved, Patrolman Zach O'Neil said.
The damage appeared to have been caused by somebody driving west on Glover Avenue and striking the mailbox with a blunt object, likely a baseball bat, from the passenger side window of a vehicle as it drove by. The damage was photographed and added to the report.
Norwalk Police Detective Sgt. Seth Fry said there were no suspects as of Sunday afternoon.
Anyone with information should call the Norwalk Police Department at (419) 663-6780.
