Lighter-fluid swastika near human rights group
Question of the Day
Police said the 6-by-6-foot swastika, discovered Wednesday, was never lighted, and the person who formed the symbol walked away. A witness described that person as 5-foot-10 man possibly in his teens or 20s and wearing some type of hooded sweatshirt.
Lt. Timothy O’Malley, commander of the criminal investigation division of the Concord Police Department, said Thursday there’s more than one business in the building and that police are trying to find out if the act was targeted or random.
“We’re aware that it’s a sensitive issue in Concord,” he said, recalling the case of racist graffiti written on the homes of four African refugee families in the city in 2011 and 2012. Raymond Stevens of Pembroke is facing charges in the case.
