Senator gets slashed tires for Christmas -- Coventry, RI

Vandals left their mark at the home of a longtime Rhode Island state senator.

Coventry Democrat Leo Raptakis said he woke up Wednesday morning to find eight tires slashed on three family vehicles.



The vandalism happened one day after Raptakis revealed he would be leaving the General Assembly to run for statewide office.

He said he’s considering a run for general treasurer or secretary of state.

Raptakis said he fears the vandalism was politically motivated.

Coventry police said they have not made any arrests.
