A Springfield home was vandalized Tuesday night with the words “child molester” spray painted on it, according to a Springfield Police Division report.
Police responded to a home in the 100 block of Cottage Place on a report of a burglary. When they arrived they learned there wasn’t a burglary.
“(The reporting person said) that he had been laying down inside of the residence when his dog began barking,” the police report says. “(He) went to the second-floor window and observed a man standing outside of the residence holding a can of spray paint.”
The report says the words “child molester” were spray-painted in dark paint onto the home, according to the report.
The man said his family had been having problems with a few individuals, the report says.
The figure looked like a man the resident knows, the report says, but no arrests were made because of a lack of suspect information.
