City police have arrested four youths in connection to reports of bullet holes in windows in the north core Thursday morning.

As part of the investigation officers reviewed security footage from the area before responding to a similar incident at the Marina Park Condominiums that evening just before 11:00 p.m., the investigation also revealed the damage to the windows was caused by steel ball bearings launched from a sling shot.

Descriptions were gathered from the footage and investigators were able to apprehend the four youths, aged 14 to 17 years old, and charge them with three counts of mischief.

They appeared in court Friday morning.

Police anticipate there may be other victims of mischief to windows in the area and are encouraging them to come forward and report the damages.

Additionally investigators are asking anyone with video surveillance of similar mischief on the night of November 15th and 16th to reach out to police so they are able to determine the full scope of the damage the four youths are responsible for.
