Four young men aged 16-22 were arrested in Breiðholt, a suburb of Reykjavík, on Friday on suspicion of having damaged more than 20 cars. The suspects had to remain in custody while being questioned; Reykjavík Metropolitan Police are investigating the case, mbl.is reports.

According to pressan.is, windows were smashed and side mirrors kicked off. Outside an apartment complex on Maríubakki at least 12 cars were damaged and four cars were damaged outside the supermarket Iceland.

The teens are also said to have smashed windows in the apartment complex on Jörfabakki. “They continued with the vandalism down the Bakkar [neighborhood], until the police arrested them by the row houses, leaving a trail of destruction,” a local resident commented on the Facebook page Betra Breiðholt (‘Better Breiðholt’).

Another inhabitant encouraged everyone who was affected to report the damages to the police, adding that the young men all have a history with the police and are known for vandalism.
