UPDATE- Police seek public assistance to identify property damage suspect
The suspect has been identified and charges are pending. We would like to thank the media and the public for their assistance with this investigation.
Original release below:
We are asking for the public’s help to identify a man believed to be responsible for damaging an Indigenous radio station’s building last month.
On Thursday, Aug. 10, 2023, at 7:31 a.m., we were called to a radio station located in the 1000 block of Centre Street after a man had repeatedly struck the windows of the radio station with a large rock.
After reviewing the CCTV, we believe the man may have targeted the radio station due to the images of Indigenous women that were painted on the two windows he struck and then defaced. The Hate Crime Prevention Team is investigating, and hate-motivation is suspected.
The suspect is described as a man in his 30s, with a slim build and a shaved head, wearing no shirt, black shorts, white shoes and a black ball cap.
Photos of the man are available on The City of Calgary Newsroom.
Anyone with information about this incident or the identity of the man is asked to contact police by calling 403-266-1234. Tips can also be submitted anonymously to Crime Stoppers through any of the following methods:
