It seems someone got mad.

If u park ur bike in your building, inside the bicycle room, and one day u go in to see ALL the bikes were stabbed with a knife, wheels destroyed.. whose fault is this? who shall i report to ?

Clearly the fault is yours by actually having a bike. rolleyes.gif

But on the serious side, there is very little that can be done unless someone has actually seen anyone near the bikes. Reporting to the police - I have never had the experience, but doubt they will do any more than nod and put it down to 'pojkstrek' (boy's fun!') which will not help you in any way. It is tough, and new tyres and tubes are not given away, but I fear you will simply have to grin and bear it. If the cycle room has no lock, then it could even happen again, too. Some people love destroying other people's property.

Others may come up with more helpful suggestions - - -

Well there are cameras all over the place. It is a commercial building. But guess what? The security access code of the door was not working (i.e. the door's lock was open). So whose fault is this? Building insurance maybe? Shall I go complain to the police against the building's administration?

Some insurances might cover that if it was say in your own blocket, but if it was in a commercial building... get pictures before you go to the police, they might get slightly interested if its just more than one bicycle, and if people start making claims its easier for just one anmälan than 50... of course they won't give a damn.
