    Police say they are looking for whoever is slashing car tires in a residential area of Staten Island.      

    They say vandals have struck twice this week in the borough's Stapleton section.      
    On Thursday, police say a line of cars, from Grant to Swan streets, had their tires slashed.      

    Nine other incidents of slashed tires were reported on Monday near the intersection of Beach and Van Duzer streets.      

    A police spokesman told the Staten Island Advance that police were increasing plainclothes patrols and urging residents to call 911 if they see something suspicious.
