Mass. police investigating 'racial graffiti' at home of HS player
Massachusetts police are investigating the home of a local high school football player, whose home, police say, was vandalized with 'racial graffiti'.
Police are investigating the home of a Lunenburg High School (Massachusetts) football player after it was vandalized with “racial graffiti,” according to Lunenburg Police Chief James Marino.
The school, including administrators and coaches, decided to indefinitely postpone Friday’s varsity football game against Oakmont Regional as a result of the vandalism.
“We had to postpone tonight’s football game as a result of an offense directed against a member of the football program,” school superintendent Loxi Jo Calmes wrote in a statement. “We have declined to release more details to enable the school administration to conduct an appropriate investigation.”
She added that school officials felt it would be inappropriate to play in the wake of the incident.
The local police department has contacted the FBI and the Worcester County district attorney’s office to support the investigation.
“As a community, we offer our deepest support to the player and his family and want to emphasize that Lunenburg is an includsive supportive community and this is not the sort of behavior we foster or tolerate,” Police Chief Marino said on Saturday. “The nature of this crime has deeply impacted the team, the school and the entire community.”
