Calgary police have released CCTV footage and are asking the public for help in identifying suspects in several cases of school graffiti that involved messages urging readers to "kill" the prime minister and telling Syrian refugees to "go home and die."
"The Calgary Police Service takes the anti-Syrian and anti-Trudeau references seriously and is investigating accordingly," police said in a statement, adding that the incidents are being investigated as hate crimes.
The series of incidents occurred at two schools and a community rink in the southeast community of Queensland.
The first case of hateful graffiti was found on Feb. 14 when a passerby noticed the anti-Syrian and anti-Trudeau messages scrawled in black paint on Wilma Hansen Junior High School.
Police released this security-camera video of that incident:
