Police are looking for three people who were caught on CCTV vandalising a school in Nicholls on Saturday night (11 May).

Between 8 pm – 8:40 pm, cameras at St John Paul II College in Nicholls showed vandals throwing rocks at glass doors and windows. Security cameras at the school were also damaged with spray paint in the incident.

Footage of the incident was uploaded to Facebook by the school in an attempt to identify the vandals.

“On the weekend JPC was the victim of vicious vandalism,” the Facebook post read. “As you can see from the footage, this was a deliberate and concerted assault aimed at causing as much damage as possible.

“It is very distressing to have our beautiful school deliberately targeted.

“We are sharing the footage with the community in the hope that someone might be able to assist the police with their investigations.”

Footage showed this person throwing rocks at a glass door and windows.

An ACT Policing spokesperson said police are investigating the incident.

Anyone who may have any information that could assist police is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.
