Sophie Mann, Reporter

Three separate graffiti incidents were reported in Evanston on Wednesday and Thursday mornings, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan said.

On Wednesday morning, a 71-year-old Evanston resident said she found red and gold spray paint on her garage in the 900 block of Monroe Street, Dugan said. The graffiti depicted a six-pointed star, swastika and pitchforks along with numbers and letters.

Later that morning, police received an anonymous complaint regarding graffiti on city property, Dugan said. An officer found an Evanston recycling can with a red pitchfork spray-painted on it in the 600 block of Elmwood Avenue.

Then on Thursday morning, officers responded to another report of graffiti in the 1100 block of Hull Terrace, Dugan said. They found the letters “RPH” in purple spray paint on a brick wall that was also city property.

Dugan said there are no suspects for any of the incidents.
