LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Residents of the Edgelea neighborhood are meeting with police Thursday night after a string of recent vandalism.

No arrests have been since the spree happened two weeks ago. As we previously reported, Lafayette police received reports of cars and homes being spray-painted. 

The Edgelea Neighborhood Coalition is hosting an open meeting to help keep their area safe. Residents who were targeted are will discuss the vandalism with police.

"We'd like to get an idea of what's going on in the investigation," coalition founder David Dorsett said. "We would like to know how to handle situations going into the future, and what's the best way to report items like that."

Neighbors are wanting to build a pocket park in that area soon, and they want to see what they can do to prevent vandalism like this from happening again.

"We'd also like to know how our idea of a pocket park will improve our neighborhood and increase neighbors working together and taking care of each other," said Dorsett.

The open meeting is being held at Edgelea Elementary Thursday from 7 to 8:30 p.m.
