UPDATE: A careless construction crew member working in Brooklyn Bridge Park left an unsecured piece of heavy equipment on Friday night.  

Sometime overnight vandals stole a fork lift and destroyed 2015 Nissan Leaf electric park police vehicle car, NYC Park Advocates has learned. 

The thieves upended the car near the parking lot at the headquarters of the Brooklyn Bridge Park at 334 Furman Street. 

The police vehicle was charging at the time.

PEP officers discovered the destruction on Saturday morning.

According to the police report an unknown perp used a construction vehicle to flip the vehicle over. 

Police are reviewing surveillance footage of the incident. They believe it occured sometime between 2- 8am Saturday morning.

A representative for the Brooklyn Bridge Park Corporation said the Bob Cat fork lift does not require a key but instead a knowledge of how to turn on the vehicle which is done through a series of sequence numbers on a key pad.

The representative estimates the time of the incident of between 3-4 am.
