Last week Burbank PD logged in 11 reports of paintball assaults on pedestrians, according to the Leader, all of which involved the perps lobbing the shots from inside a moving vehicle.

A group of males, ranging in age from their teens to late twenties, are behind the attacks, which happen before and after school areas. There are numerous suspects and vehicles involved; police warn Burbank residents to be on the lookout for any of the following: " a gold Ford, Honda or Toyota SUV with a roof rack that appears dirty; maroon Honda CRV; newer blue Ford Mustang; dark-colored GMC Yukon or Chevrolet Tahoe SUV."
