Graffiti Found on War Memorial at Kimball Park in National City

Police are investigating after graffiti was found on the face of a war memorial in National City on Saturday.

Around 9:20 p.m. Friday, surveillance video appeared to show a group of males gathering on the east side of the the War Memorial at Kimball Park. After a while, the group dispersed except for one man.

According to National City police, the video appeared to show the man spray painting the War Memorial.

The memorial honors National City veterans who fought and were killed fighting for the U.S. in World War II.

The suspect is described to be 5-feet 11-inches tall, between 17 to 25 years old, with curly black hair and a full beard. He was wearing a gray baseball cap, T-shirt, and blue jeans.

At this point, the amount of damage has not been determined.

This is not the first incident to occur at the War Memorial.

In 2014, three war memorial plaques commemorating U.S. military service members were stolen from Kimball Park.
