Vandals draw swastika on local playground, damage equipment

Vandalism inside a Park City playground bathroom
Summit County Sheriff's Office
A racist symbol was drawn on a wall in the bathroom at the Silver Creek Park. Summit County Sheriff's Office is investigating this and other damages done to the property.

A racist symbol and graffiti were left in the bathroom of a local playground, and the Sheriff’s office is investigating.  

Someone spraypainted a swastika in the bathroom of the playground in the Silver Creek Village neighborhood. The vandalism was discovered on Monday morning. Vandals also damaged and dismantled playground equipment and wrote profane and sexually explicit messages in the bathroom.

According to the Summit County Sheriff’s Office, a juvenile’s social media name was part of the graffiti left on the bathroom door. This and other initial information led the Sheriff’s deputies to believe juveniles, but not necessarily the one whose social media information they found, are responsible for the damage.

The case is currently under investigation by Summit County Sheriff’s detectives.
