For the second time in three months, a South Surrey neighbourhood has been the target of anti-Asian graffiti.
Surrey RCMP is asking for the public’s help to identify the suspect in an incident where a residential fence along a footpath at 142 Street and 18A Avenue was tagged.
RCMP say the incident happened at 7:55 p.m. on Nov. 12. Similar graffiti was found at a nearby elementary school while RCMP were investigating the area.
In September, there were similar incidents where the same fence and school were vandalized, police noted.
A video of the suspect from the Nov. 12 incident is being shared prior to the camera being spray-painted and police are asking for the public’s help in identifying the man, who was wearing a baseball cap with what appears to be a logo on the left side of the brim.
In addition, police are looking for a witness who had a brief interaction with the suspect on Nov. 12 around the same time.
The witness is described as a woman who was walking her dog on a leash in the opposite direction of the suspect.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502.
