CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago police are trying to determine who broke into Soldier Field and vandalized several of the stadium’s executive suites.

Authorities say three suites were vandalized between late Friday and early Saturday. The destruction was discovered by the stadium’s cleaning service early Sunday.

According to police, cabinets and glass was broken and the carpeting in one suite was set afire. Graffiti was carved into the walls of another suite.

Police say surveillance video show an intruder entered the closed stadium by scaling the east colonnade stairs.

The Chicago Bears are scheduled to play a preseason game on Friday. Soldier Field officials didn’t say Wednesday if repairs to the suites will be completed by then.
