MADISON, Brooklyn (PIX11) -- Police are investigating a case of vandalism in a five-block radius in Brooklyn.

Tires from at least 40 cars were slashed on parked cars along tree-lined streets on East 23rd Street between Avenues S and T in Madison Saturday night.

A resident told PIX11 News that police are looking for a pair teenagers who were seen fleeing the area.

Three people -- two white males and a white female -- are wanted for questioning. Police released video of the suspects Sunday evening.

Brooklyn Councilman David Greenfield is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the vandalism.

"We must have zero tolerance for this rampant crime spree in our neighborhood. A single tire costs hundreds of dollars, not to mention the time and energy that must be expended to replace it," Greenfield said. "That's why I am offering this reward - this kind of behavior is outrageous and quite frankly it doesn't go unnoticed that this happened in a predominantly Jewish community."
