A 72-year-old Evanston resident found his tires flattened and a scratch across the passenger side door of his 2004 Nissan on Tuesday morning.

The vehicle was parked in front of his home on the 1400 block of Brummel Street when the damage occurred between Monday evening and Tuesday morning, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said. Dugan said it was unclear whether the tires had been slashed or the air had just been let out, and the scratch appeared to have been made with a key.

The suspect is unknown, but Dugan said the man has been having an ongoing dispute with one of his neighbors, so there is speculation that the neighbor may have damaged the vehicle.

The cost of damage is also unknown.
