Graffiti Defaces Downtown North Bend Businesses

Vandals defaced North Bend businesses sometime during the night of Wednesday, Sept. 6, using orange construction spray paint.

The damage spanned 20 businesses and many sidewalks along the construction area of downtown North Bend and Mount Si Senior Center.

“Random messages and words were painted on the buildings and sidewalks, leading us to believe it was an adolescent,” Captain Nick Almquist of Snoqualmie Police Department, said.

Graffiti costs business owners thousands of dollars to repair. The graffiti on the sidewalks was sprayed on fresh concrete that had not yet cured and will need to be redone, said City of North Bend Public Works Director, Mark Rigos.

The police are canvassing the businesses for video surveillance that may have captured the vandalism.

“We want to identify those responsible for this crime and hold them accountable for the damage they caused,” Almquist said. “At this time we are trying to gather information that may lead us to the suspect or suspects. If anyone has any information related to this incident, please call 425-888-3333 anytime, day or night.”
