HENDERSON, NV (FOX5) -

Gina O'Connell is one of many victims whom had their tires slashed while parked in the Luna di Lusso underground garage overnight.

"I got up to go to work and came out and there were a lot of tenants in the garage and they said, 'Don't get in your car, your tires are all flat, and so are ours,'" O'Connell told FOX5.

About 37 different vehicles were hit, each with several tires damaged.

"All four of mine were slashed, so it's a huge inconvenience to me, I have to be at work," said [name removed at source's request], who lives at Luna di Lusso.

The mass vandalism has many questioning why someone did it.

"I don't know what's the purpose of that, you know. If somebody is disgruntled or whatever you know this is not going to change anything," Karl Battlogg, who lives at Luna di Lusso, told FOX5.

Henderson police are investigating the incident and hope to use surveillance cameras to uncover some clues.

The department also said one 911 caller got a look at someone who might have done it.

"It was a person who had their face covered by a hooded sweatshirt or perhaps a T-shirt and (the caller) did think he saw a knife in that person's hand," Keith Paul, spokesman for the Henderson Police Department, said.

Meanwhile, O'Connell and others paid big to get back on the road Monday.

"A thousand bucks, four tires on a car, it's a lot of money," O'Connell said.
