Tires slashed on multiple vehicles Saturday near hospital in Willmar, Minn.


WILLMAR — Tires on at least 20 vehicles, and possibly as many as 30 vehicles, were slashed Saturday in parking lots and on streets near Rice Memorial Hospital.

Many of the vehicles belonged to hospital employees who discovered the vandalism as they ended their shifts.

Willmar police are investigating the incident, which is believed to have happened in broad daylight — most likely in the early- to mid-afternoon hours.
