Lakeside Church vandalized with Islamic State messaging
Vandals spray-painted the message on church outside wall
Ontario Provincial Police are looking for suspects after a church was spray-painted with Islamic State messaging in Guelph-Eramosa Township.
Wellington OPP say they responded to a call at Lakeside Church Monday afternoon.
"Members [advised] that sometime overnight, unknown suspects had attended the church and did some spray-painting on the side of it," Const. Marylou Schwindt told CBC K-W.
According to an officer on the scene, someone started to write the words "Islamic State will rema[in]," in black spray paint on a wall outside the church.
Police say the vandals likely ran out of paint before they could complete the act.
The OPP's Forensic Identification Services is investigating this as a crime of mischief.
