Offensive graffiti left on minority-operated buildings in New Haven


NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)–New Haven police are trying to track down whoever left offensive and sexual graffiti on a number of buildings on Route 80. The graffiti was found at a police sub station, an Indian restaurant, a barber shop, and an immigration office, all along Foxon Boulevard.

All of the places vandalized on Monday morning are minority-owned businesses. The graffiti included a number of swastikas, and even an inappropriate drawing of Governor Malloy.

Glass windows were also shattered. A property owner and business owner told News 8 they thought someone was targeting them.

“It seems as if it is,” said barbershop owner Travis Hall. “I don’t know for sure, but seeing that this is the second time this month, probably.”

New Haven police are reviewing surveillance footage and hope to identify a suspect soon.
