People living near Sahara Avenue and Hualapai Way are keeping a close eye out after more than a dozen of their tires were slashed.

Susana Buller Guzman says she noticed her tires were flat, and at first thought, it was just her. She then found out a few other neighbors on her street had the same problem.

Guzman says, in addition, the unexpected repairs, it's frustrating for her family.

"Having two cars, and then to have to go down to one, it's complicated so hopefully we'll fix it by the end of the week," Guzman said.  

She posted a warning to her neighbors on social media, and that's when she found out the problem was bigger than she thought.

Turns out, the apartment complex adjacent to her street also saw at least a dozen tire slashing around the same time.

One of those vehicles belonged to John Reno. "I just don't understand why anyone would do something like that," Reno said.

The military veteran and retiree now says he's having to replace his tires after already having bought new ones recently.

The incident has neighbors concerned about safety. They say they never had problems before and considered Summerlin a safe area.  Now they're banning together to keep an eye out.

Meanwhile, police left notices on some of the cars affected and are investigating this case.
