Update: VicPD officers have identified a suspect after a man was captured on surveillance video allegedly breaking into and vandalizing the Beacon Hill Park Children’s Farm Petting Zoo.
VicPD officers are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man captured on surveillance video allegedly breaking into and vandalizing the Beacon Hill Park Children’s Farm Petting Zoo.
The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, between 20 and 30 years of age, with a slim build and curly brown hair. Standing 5’9” tall, the male wore blue jeans, no shirt and a dark ball cap with a white triangular logo in the front centre. The male also has a small cross-style tattoo on his right upper arm. Images of the male are attached.
The male is alleged to have broken into the Beacon Hill Children’s Farm Petting Zoo after 9 p.m. last night. He is alleged to have engaged in acts of mischief, including turning on hoses and leaving the water running, which flooded several pens. The owners of the petting zoo are still assessing the damage, but were able to open this morning after a substantial delay. No animals were hurt.
If you know who this man is, or have information about the incident, you are asked to call the VicPD non-emergency line at (250) 995-7654, or report it anonymously through CrimeStoppers at 1-877-222-TIPs (8477).
