Attempt to identify suspects who disfigured the King Ward mural (pictured)
September 10, 2021 9:30 AM
The Portland Police Office is trying to identify several suspects in a vandalism case that damaged a community mural in the King neighborhood of northeast Portland.
On July 26, 2021, the Portland Police Department learned that the George Floyd memorial mural had been defaced and marked with graffiti advertising a white supremacist group. Officers launched an investigation and learned that the graffiti had already been removed by community volunteers. But they were able to get a photo and surveillance video of the crime. As attempts to identify the suspects were unsuccessful, PPB is now sharing the video asking the community for help in identifying them.
The video can be viewed here: https://youtu.be/wYfc2r-ExnM. The offending graffiti has been partially blotted out by PPB.
The crime took place on July 24, 2021 at 11:39 p.m. in the 3800 block of Northeast Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. Anyone with information about this crime or the suspects in the video, please email [email protected] and reference case number 21-802042.
