Vulgar graffiti from ‘lone individual’

A fresh spate of racist and vulgar graffiti appeared in and around the City of Hamilton this morning. The phrases, written in black spray paint, were spotted on walls on Angle Street, Canal Road, Happy Valley Road and Parsons Road.

Pictures of the vandalism appeared on social media soon after.

The messages focused primarily on black women. One piece included an offensive term for mixed-race people.

A spokesman for the Bermuda Police Service said that the graffiti had been documented.

He added: “Reassurance is being provided to area residents and businesses.

“There is every reason to suggest that this is the action of a lone individual.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 295-0011.
