Police are looking for someone who sawed off and stole brass handrails from a downtown Providence park in the middle of the night.

Witnesses heard chainsaws around 2 AM and now about 50 feet of rail is missing from Waterplace Park.

Police say this theft part of a bigger problem. Recently people have been stealing the handrails on staircases and likely selling them for scrap.

Officers are looking for a man, William Hazard, who is connected to other thefts in the area but there are no cameras in the park. So it's tough to tell if he's responsible this time.
