DENVER — Police have released surveillance photos that show a possible suspect and suspect vehicle connected to racist graffiti that was spray-painted outside a Denver home.

The vandalism occurred around 6:25 p.m. on March 2, according to Denver police and included racial slurs and a lynching scene in blue paint outside a home on North Fillmore Street in the Clayton neighborhood.

Police said a surveillance camera showed an unidentified man and a large SUV outside the home when the vandalism occurred. The vehicle appears to be light in color and could be a 2000-2006 Chevrolet Suburban or a GMC Yukon with bright blue LED lights, police said. The vehicle also appears to have its rear license plate attached to the bumper instead of the lift gate.

The suspect is described as a heavy-set man with a “noticeable gait,” police said.

A reward of up to $2,000 is available for information that leads to an arrest in this case.
