Beloved Frosty display vandalized

A stunned Missouri family came home to find their blow-up frosty had been the victim of a stabbing.

"We could see a pickup truck come down the street- down the alley here- a passenger jumped out you can see him run up to the snowman here and shank it, try to cut the rope and then he took off went back to the truck and took off it was pretty quick" said homeowner Jeff Diggs.

Home security video shows a driver pulling up to their home, attacking the loveable inflatable and then taking off.

“It’s just mean spirited, it’s silly vandalism” Diggs said. “It looks like a couple of kids just having fun. While it might be fun to you it hurts other people.”

Diggs has started an online account for the deflated frosty, but all proceeds will go to a Saint Louis area charity.

“This is a nice place to live and I want to try and keep it that way,” Diggs said. “So if we all at least make everyone aware of what happens, more eyes on the street, more people paying attention to what’s going on, hopefully those kinds of senseless acts will decrease.”
