Tire slash flash

Milwaukee police said just after noon today that they have a suspect description in the case of the GOP tire slashing. A private security guard reported a man running from where the tires were slashed, said Police Sgt. Ken Harris.

The guard reported seeing a white male, 18 to 25 years old, between 5-feet-6 to 5-feet-9 tall and about 170 pounds, wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and dark jeans, running from the Republican offices around 6:45 a.m., Harris said. Milwaukee police detectives typically would not investigate a case of slashed tires but were put on the case given the potential political overtones of this crime, Harris said.

'Because there is a chance it might have been politically motivated, we are making every effort to bring this case to a swift conclusion,' Harris told JS reporter John Diedrich. "
