Hamilton Police investigating August’s second Bias Incident

HAMILTON: On August 6, 2020, Hamilton Police were detailed to the area of St. Mary’s Cemetery, located at 1200 Cedar Lane, on a report of a Bias Intimidation complaint regarding graffiti at the location. Responding officers observed graffiti on the roadway of Clover Avenue which read “Kill N*****s” in red spray paint, which was also accompanied by a Swastika sprayed in red paint.

This criminal mischief appears to be the second such incident this week involving the same suspect. The first incident occurred on August 3, 2020 at Shady Brook Park located at 655 Pitman Avenue. In that incident, the same words were spray painted in red paint on a fence post located in the park.

In both Bias Intimidation incidents, no suspects have been identified.

Anyone with additional information regarding either incident is asked to contact Detective Larry MacArthur of the Criminal Investigations Section at 609-689-5827 or via email at lmacarthur@hamiltonpd.org. The public can also contact the Hamilton Police Crime Tip Hotline at 609-581-4008 with any additional information.
