ORANGEBURG, N.Y. -- Orangetown police are seeking the public's help in finding those responsible for damaging a police car while officers were handling a call Saturday at the Nyack Plaza parking lot, police said.

Police said while they were trying to help a violent juvenile Saturday afternoon, a group of about 15 people surrounded the marked police car. One of the car's tires were punctured, police said.

Police said they were able to help the juvenile, who'd smashed a TV and caused other damage, get medical attention. But having a group of people surround them could affect the police response to the next call, police said.

Anyone with information can call Orangetown police detectives at 845-359-2121.
