DENVER -- It's the nightmare that never ends as a brazen tire slasher returned to the Northfield Apartments in Stapleton on Monday night and slashed the tires of 16 more vehicles.

Upward of 60 vehicles have been targeted over the past month.

Brandy Krebbs is a single mother and has a terminally ill child. Her tires were slashed for a third time Tuesday morning.

"One of the other residents walked up and said you got it too? And I thought there's no way it happened again," Krebbs said.

Krebbs needed her Jeep on Tuesday morning to take her son to the doctor.

"He had two appointments today at Children's Hospital and I had to cancel both of them and it takes six months to get back in," she said.


Big O Tires on Federal Boulevard agreed to replace her tires for free.

"We're usually the bearer of bad news, so it's always good to do something good and put a smile on somebody's face, said Alex Linnabary with Big O Tires.

It's a gesture that meant the world to Krebbs, who relies on her Jeep to make ends meet and to get her son the medical care he needs.

"It's nice. It restores back some hope that people actually do that for each other," she said.

Police have increased patrols in the area and the property management company has added security cameras, but so far the culprits haven't been caught
