Pittsburgh, PA – Pittsburgh police are looking for two suspects who vandalized a North Shore police memorial on Thursday night.
The incident occurred just before 9 p.m. on July 30 when security cameras nearby the Law Enforcement Officers Memorial in the 400-block of North Shore Drive caught a woman removing a wreath that had been placed on the memorial, according to a post on the official Facebook page of the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police.
Pittsburgh police said the female suspect was wearing a mask and a white t-shirt with a blue-gray long-sleeved shirt over it.
The Facebook post said the woman removed the wreath from the police memorial and threw it on the ground.
That’s when the second suspect, a man wearing a black mask, camouflage pants, and a red bandana on his head, picked up the memorial wreath and stuffed the whole thing into a garbage can, according to the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police.
Police also posted three pictures from the scene of the vandalism.
The memorial pays tribute to Allegheny County law enforcement officers who have “made the ultimate sacrifice” in service to their community, KDKA reported.
The memorial not only honors law enforcement officers who died in the line of duty in Allegheny County, but also those who grew up in the county but died in the line of duty elsewhere.
The same police memorial was vandalized in March when somebody spray-painted it with graffiti, KDKA reported.
Police seek the public’s help to identify these two individuals.
The female was seen removing a wreath that had been placed at the the Law Enforcement Officers Memorial on the North Shore on July 30.
The male then stuffed it into a trash can.
