Police Investigate Vandalism at Squirrel Hill Business

Date: November 13, 2023
Incident Type: Criminal mischief
Location: Zone 4
Summary:

On the morning of Friday, November 10, Pittsburgh Police from Zone 4 responded to a business in the 2400 block of Beechwood Blvd. for a criminal mischief report.

The business owner told police that sometime overnight the windows of his storefront and his marked business vehicle had been vandalized. 

Surveillance video shows that at approximately 3:50 a.m., what appears to be a female dressed in all black approaches the business with a hammer. She attempts several times to break the front window, but is unsuccessful. The actor then takes two "Support Israel" signs off the front window and throws them. She continues trying to smash the store windows before walking down Beechwood Blvd where she hits the passenger side window of the work truck, causing it to shatter.

There are no arrests at this time. Police continue to actively investigate.
