Police hope public can help find person responsible for racist spray paint

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.
