The Nanaimo RCMP is investigating anti-sexual orientation graffiti spray painted on the Rainbow crosswalk at the intersection of Commercial Drive and Bastion Street.
The incident most likely occurred in the early morning hours of Friday, September 9th, 2016.
The writings refer to specific passages from the Bible.
Investigators believe, based on where it was found and the biblical reference, it is directed at the LGBTQ community.
The Rainbow crosswalk was put in place earlier this year to show support for the first ever Pride parade held in the City of Nanaimo.
The RCMP will be providing the necessary resources to find who is responsible and to hold them accountable,” said Cst. Gary O’Brien of the Nanaimo RCMP. “We are asking the public to assist in furthering our investigation.
If you have information on this incident, please call Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
