Jason Bonilla, 24, was arrested in connection to the vandalism of a San Pedro barber shop/Image via LAPD
After a string of businesses had their windows smashed in San Pedro, one man has been arrested, according to a statement released by the LAPD this morning. Since mid-July, 16 businesses have had their windows smashed, mostly by BB pellets but at least one by a brick. The vandalism all took place between 7:00 p.m. and 4:30 a.m., along busy streets in the area.

Jason Bonilla, 24, was arrested yesterday at about 2:15 p.m. in connection with an attack on the San Pedro Barber Shop. Detectives are still looking for anyone else involved in the incidents, and have identified through surveillance cameras a four-door, dark colored
compact vehicle, possibly a Toyota, that may be connected to the crimes.

Other businesses that were targeted include the 99 Cent Store was hit at least four times, Pacific Home Furniture, British European Auto and American Furniture.
