UWPD investigates Memorial Union, Alumni Park graffiti

The University of Wisconsin-Madison Police Department is searching for two unknown suspects after reports of graffiti outside Memorial Union and Alumni Park on Monday morning.

According to the UWPD, the suspects arrived at the area around 4 a.m. on Monday, where they spray painted “multiple walls, signs, boats, displays, memorials and pieces of art.” The cost of damage and clean up is estimated to be at least $30,000, according to the release. 

The two suspects were well covered and wearing masks. They arrived and departed from the Lowell Center on Langdon Street.

UWPD spokesperson Marc Lovicott did not respond to an immediate request for comment. 

The police are continuing their investigation and asked that community members reach out if they have any information about the incident or suspects.
