Police in Vaughan are seeking the public’s help in identifying two suspects who have been involved in a series of disturbing acts of vandalism in the area. In recent weeks, multiple homes and vehicles have been targeted, with swear words spray painted, windows smashed, and even skinned goat heads left behind.
The first incident occurred on the early morning of October 25th in the Melville Avenue and Hudson Drive area. Police received reports of profanity sprayed on an SUV and the garage door. Surveillance footage captured one suspect vandalizing the vehicle while the other acted as a lookout.
Two days later, on October 27th, another incident took place at the same address. This time, a skinned goat head was thrown through a window, accompanied by more graffiti on vehicles and stick figures on the walkway. Additionally, two skinned goat heads were left at a nearby home on Weston Road and Villa Royale Avenue.
Authorities believe these acts of vandalism are targeted and likely carried out by the same individuals. However, they suspect that the second home visited by the suspects may have been a case of mistaken identity.
To aid their investigation, police have released surveillance video footage showing the suspects. In the video, one of the suspects can be seen smashing windows with a hammer and spray painting a vehicle.
This vandalism spree has caused concern among residents, and police are urging anyone with information to come forward. As of now, no descriptions of the suspects have been released, heightening the need for public assistance.
If you have any information related to these incidents, please contact the York Regional Police or provide a tip anonymously through Crime Stoppers. Your cooperation can help bring these vandals to justice and ensure the safety and peace of mind of the community.
