The Ottawa Police Service are searching for a suspect after a swastika was carved into the National War Memorial in Ottawa, Ontario. The graffiti was carved on the evening of Friday, October 16th.

The perpetrator utilized a sharp object to carve the swastika into the helmet of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier's gravestone. The police are investigating the graffiti as a hate crime.

According to police, the suspect is a "Caucasian man. He was wearing a light coloured sweater, dark pants, a dark tuque, a black back pack and was riding a mountain style bike."

According to the Ottawa Citizen, the damage to the memorial has already been repaired.

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is supposed to be guarded by sentries, but their hours have been reduced since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Sentries are only on duty between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., leaving the monument unguarded for the vandal.

Police are asking anyone with information on the suspect to call the Ottawa Police Hate Crime Investigations Unit at 613-236-1222, ext. 5453. For those who wish to leave a tip anonymously, police recommend contacting Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
