Police make arrest in vandalism of police car during World Series celebrations

San Francisco police have made an arrest in connection with the vandalism of a police car on the night of the Giants World Series victory, which featured rowdy and raucous street celebrations that followed the game, Sgt. Monica Macdonald said in a statement.

Ryan Douglas London, 19, of San Francisco was booked on one charge of felony vandalism for the $10,000 worth of damage to the police car, Macdonald said.

Investigators combed through surveillance video over a two-week period and the footage led to London’s arrest.

During the course of the celebrations following the World Series, 12 police vehicles were vandalized, Macdonald said.

Although police did not reveal the location of the vehicle London is alleged to have damaged, they did say he was arrested in the area it happened.

Anyone with information on other vandalism they saw that night is encouraged to call Sgt. Tony Damato at (415) 553-1449 or the anonymous tipline at (415) 575-4444.
