Legal Action against damaging property

My tenants are not telling me who actually damaged a glass in an antique door. Can I press charges against all of them since no one will tell me who actually did it?

If it was an accident, then it would be a civil matter and not criminal. It would only be criminal mischief if someone damaged the door on purpose. You can file a complaint with the local precinct but it is unlikely that it will result in any charges. The police will not make an arrest without some indication of who was directly responsible.
