Mainstrasse Windshield Smashers Arrested
The two men caught on video smashing a pair of BMW windshields are now behind bars after being located and confessing, according to Covington Police.
Mainstrasse Village resident Lee Bledsoe, whose car was one of the two damaged, captured the act on video near Seventh and Bakewell streets.
Covington Police said Thursday that they received "numerous tips over the last 24 hours" and were able to identify the suspects.
Alexander Hegerty, 24, of Covington, and Alexander Majeid, 24, of Fort Wright, were brought to police headquarters for questioning where investigators said the pair confessed to the acts.
Each man is being held at the Kenton County Detention Center where they face two counts of first degree criminal mischief.
Majied has been arrested multiple times in Kenton County, according to jail records. Most recently, he was charged with first degree rape and unlawful transaction with a minor last November in an event that led the SWAT team to Augusta Avenue last November, according to a report in The River City News at the time.
He was arrested in 2016 on charges of 4th degree assault and terroristic threatening, and on those same charges in 2015.
