Grinch-like vandals deliver malice to Onondaga Hill on Christmas | #College. | #Students

Syracuse, N.Y. – Expecting visits from Santa Claus, at least three residents of a quiet neighborhood on Onondaga Hill reported visits from mean-spirited vandals instead during the pre-dawn hours of Christmas.

A group of three or more males traveling by car – teenagers, perhaps, or college kids – broke Christmas lights, punctured inflatable Santas and egged houses in the Sherwood Heights neighborhood off Howlett Hill Road. Two of the neighbors caught video images of the vandals at about 2 a.m. on their Ring doorbell cameras.

Amanda Griffin, whose house was pelted with eggs and whose sidewalk Christmas lights were stomped on, said it “put a little damper’’ on her family’s holiday.

“We expected Santa last night but got some nasty, somebody else,’’ she said.

Vandals egged houses in the early hours of Christmas on Onondaga Hill.

Griffin said her three children did not let it spoil their Christmas. But they got a lesson in what it means to be “on the not-nice list,’’ she said.

Nearby at Katie Joly’s house, the vandals popped three inflatables – a minion, a flamingo, and Santa. A third neighbor captured footage of the vandals on her Ring camera.

The neighbors said they reported the mischief to police.

“We still had a good Christmas,’’ Joly said. “But I don’t understand” why someone would do that.
