(CNN) – Police in the city that will host the Republican National Convention next week are looking for suspects in the vandalism of Barack Obama’s St. Paul campaign offices.
Police spokesman Peter Panos said the incident occurred just after 1 a.m. CT Sunday. Arriving officers found two large plate glass windows shattered, a glass door “smashed out,” and paint splattered inside and outside the building.
The storefront offices on Raymond Avenue had several Obama campaign signs hanging on it. The signs remained on some of the broken windows while large shards of glass covered the sidewalk in front of the building and the floor inside.
One campaign worker was in a lower level of the building when the vandalism occurred. Panos said they do not believe the suspects were aware anyone was inside, and “their intent was not to hurt anyone.” He said no threats were received, and the incident is being investigating as a local property crime case. Federal authorities were not alerted.
Police are reviewing security videotapes from nearby businesses to see if any suspects could be identified. They have issued an appeal for anyone with information to contact officers or a Crimestoppers tip line.
