DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) — Police continue to search for a vandal suspected of spray painting the numbers “666” on or near several Dallas landmarks.
The vandalism was discovered on Sunday morning, June 29, at various locations. Police believe the vandalism started at the Cathedral of Hope, a place of worship self-described as “the nations largest gay church.”
The “Legacy of Love”, a monument at the entrance of Dallas’ gay entertainment and lifestyle boulevard, was also stained with the remnants of the washed away “666”.
In all, a dozen buildings or landmarks were painted with the number in the city.
Surveillance video has been released showing the suspect riding his bike near the Dallas City Hall parking garage.
The suspect is described as a white male, about 6 feet tall and wearing khaki cargo shorts, a dark shirt or jacket, a black baseball cap and a backpack.
Anyone with information is asked to call Dallas Police.
The crime was initially being investigated as a hate crime, as it fell during Gay Pride Month.
