Palo Alto: Police investigate ‘KKK’ written in two bathrooms of Fletcher Middle School as hate crime

Palo Atlo – Palo Alto police are investigating a vandalism in which “KKK” was written in two bathrooms at a middle school, according to officials.

Police responded to a report of vandalism from administrative staff at a middle school at around 4:06 pm on Wednesday, officials said. The suspect wrote “KKK” in two restrooms at Fletcher Middle School at 655 Errastradero Road. Staff members removed the graffiti before the police arrived.

According to police, on May 10 and May 11, two separate boys’ toilets on the campus were vandalized and in both cases the man wrote “KKK” using a marker or pen. It was written on a bathroom stall on May 10 and it was written on the walls and a toilet paper dispenser on May 11. Police said they think the same person had committed the crime. Officials are investigating the incident and working closely with the school administration.

According to officials, police previously investigated a graffiti vandalism at Palo Alto Elementary School in January 2022. Police said someone had written a racial adjective directed at black people on school property. School officials also found a sign showing two non-white children who had also been bitten and turned away. The case is still ongoing and no suspects or arrests have been identified or arrested. The police do not have evidence to link the two cases between the two schools.

Anyone with knowledge of the matter has been asked to call the police’s 24-hour dispatch center at 650-329-2413. Anonymous tips can be emailed to paloalto@tipnow.org or sent via text message or voice mail to 650-383-8984.
