Police Investigating Graffiti Incident

Kenmore, WA (March 18, 2019) –  Kenmore Police is currently investigating some particularly disturbing graffiti placed on the exterior bathroom walls at Rhododendron Park, sometime in the last 24 – 48 hours. The words “boys”, “girls”, and “trans”, were scrawled in red paint above water fountains and a pet water bowl in a way that is inexcusable, denigrating, and not representative of our Kenmore community.
