Teaneck police say a man on a bicycle has been throwing bricks and shattering windows on homes and cars around the community.

Nearly a dozen incidents were reported late Monday night. One of the victims told NBC 4 New York said he heard the brick smash his window at about 11:30 p.m. 

"I heard a noise and I said to my wife, 'Did you hear that?'" said Tom Schaitberger. "I opened the door and I come out here and I go, 'God, look at this.'"

Schaitberger called the police, and they told him the incident appeared to be part of a pattern. Police say a man over the age of 18 is riding a bike through the neighborhood and throwing bricks. It's not clear why. 

One 18-year-old woman was home during one of the brick-throwing incidents and was hit either a brick of piece of glass, but was not badly injured, according to reports. 

"I can't understand why people get a kick out of destroying somebody else's property," said Schaitberger. "I just can't."
