Residents say such incidents have become rampant in the area, and they're afraid to wake up and find their own cars damaged.

In a statement, the NYPD says, "The commanding officer of the 45th Precinct is aware of vandalism involving multiple vehicles in the Pelham Bay area over the weekend and has deployed Neighborhood Coordination Officers, patrol officers and anti-crime personnel to the area to conduct patrols to monitor the area and search for a suspect(s) during every tour."

Sources say the detective squad is looking into over five complaints of vandalized cars.
