Roughly seven weeks after students arrived at B. Davison Secondary School to find hate-motivated graffiti on the front doors, London police have charged two teenage boys.
Police were first called to the scene at 8:30 a.m. Feb. 22 to find the words “Arabs R Terrorists” and “Gay Fags” spray-painted on the front doors. The case was then reassigned from the Criminal Investigations Unit to the Street Gang Unit – which is also responsible for investigating hate-motivated crimes.
On Thursday, April 13, police announced that charges have been laid in connection with the case.
Two boys, 15 and 16, are jointly charged with mischief/damage to property under $5,000.
The London Middlesex Crown Attorney’s office has been consulted on the hate crime aspect of the case.
