A Brockville teen is facing charges after the Pride crosswalk in Prescott was damaged for a third time.

On Friday, OPP said a 16-year-old has been charged with mischief after they released an image of a vehicle that had allegedly burned tire marks across the crosswalk on Nov. 5.

This is the third time the crosswalk has been damaged in this way since it was first installed in 2019.

After the second instance of vandalism, the Town of Prescott invested in security cameras aimed at the crosswalk, which police say caught the vehicle deliberately vandalizing the LGBTQ2 symbol the night of Nov. 5.

Police then put a call out on social media with the image of the vehicle, asking for the driver to be identified.
