Ceres Police are hoping the public can help them identify and arrest this man for an act of vandalism that could prove to be a hate crime.
The department has surveillance video of thesuspect who vandalized a vehicle parked in a residential driveway. The crime occurred at 11:34 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 31 in the 900 block of Stone Springs Drive. The suspect appears to be a white man in his 20's, approximately 6 foot tall, with brown hair, facial hair, wearing a loose T-shirt and long baggy shorts. The video shows him drawing a long bladed knife before taking a rock and throwing it at the driver’s side door. The rock bounced off and he picked it up to throw it a second time.
Because the owners of the vehicle are of Indian descent, the possibility of a hate crime is being considered.
Damage was about $570. Phone information into 538-5730.
