Hamilton Police have obtained video footage capturing images of the suspect involved in hate motivated acts.

Two separate incidents involving the theft of Pride flags occurred this month.

First instance was in the early morning hours of June 12, near the intersection of Edgemont St. S. An unidentified individual approached a residential driveway and forcibly removed a Pride flag from the victim’s vehicle, resulting in damage to the flag.

A week later, on June 18, it is believed that the same suspect returned to the same residence and vandalized a front window that displayed a Pride flag.

Authorities are appealing to the public for any information that could aid in identifying the suspect responsible.
