San Leandro Police Investigate Anti-Asian Hate Crime

On Saturday, June 18th, around 9 pm, San Leandro police officers responded to the 15300 block of Inverness Street regarding a vandalized realtor sign in front of a house in the process of being sold.  The spray-painted graffiti on the sign included a racial epithet within an anti-Asian message.  Officers returned the next morning, around 7 am, regarding another anti-Asian graffiti message using the same epithet.  This time the message was spray-painted on the garage door of the residence.        

Since the realtor, property owners, and most recent tenants of the residence are all of Asian descent, this crime is being investigated as a targeted hate crime.

“Hate crimes of any sort will not be tolerated in the City of San Leandro.  The police department will devote extra resources to protect those being victimized by hate and to bring the perpetrators of these crimes to justice,” said Lieutenant Abe Teng.
Anyone with information regarding these incidents is urged to contact SLPD via any of the following methods: non-emergency line at (510)577-2740, anonymous tip line at (510)577-3278, or text-to-tip at 888777 (keyword: TipSLPolice).
