Toronto police have released an image of a suspect, wanted after officials say a TTC bus was damaged during Raptors victory celebrations in the city’s downtown core last Thursday.

Police said the incident occurred just before midnight in the area of Yonge and Dundas streets, shortly after the Raptors clinched the NBA title.

Tens of thousands of fans took to the streets following the win, with some vandalism to vehicles and businesses reported.

Police described him as 18 or 19 years old, with a slim build and short brown hair. Officials said he was wearing a white T-shirt and khaki pants at the time and is now wanted for mischief.
