Three acts of vandalism in the run-up to Bermuda's first Pride parade are still under investigation, police have revealed.

CCTV footage showed a suspect spray-painting the Pride sticker on the front entrance of The Royal Gazette offices on Par-la-Ville Road between 3am and 8am on August 30, the day before the parade.

A spokesman for the Bermuda Police Service said: “Efforts to identify and locate that individual are ongoing.”

He added that police were also probing the vandalism of crosswalks on Queen Street and Washington Street in Hamilton, which had been decorated in Pride colours in honour of the parade, the night before the rally and march.

Witnesses should call 717-2072 or e-mail dberry@bps.bm.
