• Pasadena Police Looking For Help to Find Vandals

    PASADENA (CNS) – Pasadena police sought the public’s help today in the
    search for the vandals who have been plastering racist and anti-gay graffiti on
    surfaces in Pasadena.
    The graffiti spray-painted along Washington Boulevard between Lincoln
    and El Molino avenues surfaced earlier this week and was recently removed, the
    Pasadena Police Department said. The targets included residential, commercial
    and city-owned buildings.
    “Residents and businesses in the neighborhoods need to know these
    crimes will not be tolerated,’ said police Chief Phillip Sanchez. “We will
    uphold each person’s rights to live in an environment free of such acts.’
    The graffiti has included racist and homophobic slurs and Swastikas.
    One of the vandals’ targets was in the area of Kings Village, a
    Northwest Pasadena apartment complex. It unnerved leaders in the neighborhood.
    The NAACP “is always gravely concerned when we hear of epithets being
    marked on walls in this city,” Joe Brown, Pasadena-branch NAACP president, told
    the Pasadena Star-News earlier this week.
    Added Pasadena Mayor Bill Bogaard: “Any action or event that suggests
    racial bigotry or discrimination or hatred is tremendously disappointing.”
    Police asked that anyone with information on the graffiti vandals call
    the department at (626) 744-4241.
