FAIRVIEW PARK, Ohio (WJW)- Fairview Park Police are asking for the public’s help identifying a suspect accused of spray painting racial graffiti outside of an LGBTQ+ advocacy center.

The damage was discovered early Friday morning at Colors+, located on Lorain Road.

Police said, at the time of the incident, the center was displaying a “Black Lives Matter” flag in the front window.

The crime was caught on camera.

Surveillance video shows a suspect dressed all in black and wearing a black baseball hat and a black bandana around their face spray painting outside the building. The video also shows the suspect throw a brick through the front window. Police said the brick was allegedly directed towards the “BLM” flag.
