Police seek public assistance in vandalism incidents

The Calgary Police Service is seeking public assistance for information in relation to two incidents of vandalism that occurred earlier this month.

On Saturday, Dec. 2, 2017, between approximately 1:15 a.m. and 3 a.m., a 1973 GMC converted school bus was spray painted while parked in front of a residence, located in the 300 block of Deerview Drive S.E. A bedsheet with threatening messages written on it was also found on the front lawn of the residence.

At approximately 2:30 a.m., on the same day, a woman awoke to the sound of glass breaking at her home, located in the 300 block of Queen Charlotte Drive S.E. A rock had been thrown through the front window. A small statue and note, containing threatening messages, were also found on the front step of the home.

Police believe the incidents were targeted and that they are also connected. Police take these incidents very seriously and investigators with the Centralized General Investigative Section are collaborating with the Hate Crimes Coordinator.
