Investigators have released CCTV images of a “person of interest” in connection with last month’s defacement of the Ontario Police Memorial Monument.
On the same day anti-police demonstrators held a rally at Nathan Phillips Square and on University Ave. in front of the U.S. Consulate — June 20 — members of the OPP Queen’s Park detachment discovered the monument had been defaced with “BLM” scrawled in red spray paint.
The memorial to fallen police officers is located on the Ontario Legislature grounds in a park in the Grosvener St.-Queen’s Park Cres. E. area.
Unveiled in 2000, the memorial features twin bronze statues of male and female police officers flanked by a granite eight-panel wall of honour inscribed with the names of Ontario police officers who lost their lives in the line of duty over the past 200 years.
Police released images of a woman with short-to-medium brown hair and wearing sunglasses, a blue face mask, a brown-and-white checked sleeveless shirt, acid-washed jean shorts and white sneakers.
Police urge anyone with information to call 1-888-310-1122 or Crime Stoppers.
