Suspect turns himself in relating to hate-motivated vandalism in Bradford, second suspect sought

Vehicles and a front door had been spray-painted with homophobic graffiti

South Simcoe Police say a man has turned himself in relating to hate-motivated vandalism in Bradford months ago.

The investigation started in November of 2021 when they were called to the area of Walker Avenue and Morris Road about damage to two vehicles, and a front door.

According to police, the vehicles in the driveway and front door had been spray-painted with homophobic graffiti. The windows and tires of the vehicles were also damaged – there were no injuries.

A 48-year-old Markham man faces three counts of mischief under $5,000, and trespassing.

He was released with a future court date.

Police say the investigation is ongoing, as they are trying to identify a second suspect.
