Arlington Heights police received a report on Monday, October 26, 2020 that a 6” x 6” swastika was being drawn on an outside pillar of an Arlington Heights condominium building located on the 0-99 block of East Palatine Road. Police are continuing to actively investigate this case.
Mayor Tom Hayes responded to the hateful vandalism with a message
“It is with a heavy heart that I must once again speak for the entire Village Board in strongly condemning another act of hateful vandalism in our community over the weekend when a swastika was drawn on a pillar outside of the lobby to a multi-unit residential dwelling on Palatine Road.”
“I will say in no uncertain terms again that hate has no home in Arlington Heights and that such criminal acts will not be tolerated. As such, I have directed our Police Chief to aggressively investigate and to assist in the prosecution of any offenders caught to the full extent of the law.
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic resurgence, and perhaps the most trying time in most of our lifetimes, let us all reflect the caring and welcoming community that is the City of Good Neighbors and do all we can to put an end to these acts of hate.”
— Mayor Tom Hayes
