Local businesses such as Donut Monster, The Beverly and Bitten are boarded up and owners frightened.

The vandals caused an estimated $100-thousand in damage, overturning recycling bins, hurling rocks at storefronts and overturning cars along a one-kilometre stretch of Locke Street in the Hamilton's Kirkendall neighbourhood.
