Police investigate rock throwing incidents in Antis Township

State police are investigating a number of rock-throwing incidents that affected several vehicles traveling on I-99 last weekend.
The first case happened during a fifteen-minute span around 9 p.m. on Saturday near mile post 38 when someone threw rocks at four different vehicles from a wooded area along the west side of the highway. The four vehicles were hit and damaged. All of the drivers and passengers escaped injury.
The next incident happened in the early morning hours on Sunday when a Duncansville woman reported her car was struck by a rock that was believed to be thrown from the side of the road, causing damage to the right door of the vehicle. The incident happened at 3:45 a.m.
Still later police reported another incident at mile marker 38 on Sunday afternoon around 1:30 p.m.
In that case, four vehicles were southbound on the interstate. The vehicles were hit by rocks that came from the west side of the road. None of the drivers or their passengers were injured.
State police were able to identify and locate suspects in that case. Juveniles from the Bellmeade area between the ages of 13 and 15 admitted to the rock-throwing incidents.
Hollidaysburg state police said Logan Township Police assisted in the investigation. Police did not indicate if the suspects in the Sunday afternoon case were involved in the other cases. Their investigation is continuing.
Anyone with information about the activity is asked to call Pennsylvania State Police at 696-6100.
