No motive was disclosed in the vandalism, and it was not clear how many people carried it out. Police said they had no suspects.

Rebecca Longsworth of North Arlington said two tires were slashed on her Prius. Several other hybrids, parked within a few blocks of her car, were also damaged, she said.

The damage to Longsworth’s car was particularly bothersome, she said, because the tires were new.
