GARDEN CITY, Kan. (KSNW) — A woman dropping her child off at a Garden City elementary school Monday reported a frightening incident. A man slashed her tire and pounded on the windows of her car while shouting at her.
The Garden City Police Department said it happened outside Florence Wilson Elementary, 1709 Labrador Boulevard.
