SOUTH BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say a man seeking revenge against the man dating his ex-girlfriend went to the wrong New Jersey house and caused $10,000 in damage to vehicles in the driveway.

NJ.com (http://bit.ly/1Wl7nBj ) reports Ajinka Kelkar believed a vehicle in the driveway of a South Brunswick home belonged to the other man. Police say the family that lives there soon discovered several vehicles had been damaged.

Investigators say the vehicles' tires were slashed and one had obscenities scratched into its door and fender.

Police say Kelkar was caught on surveillance footage walking around the property with a knife and damaging the vehicles. They say they went to his South Brunswick home and arrested him hours later.

He's charged with trespassing and criminal mischief. He's in custody and can't be reached for comment. It's unclear if he has an attorney.
