SUSPECT HATE CRIME AT IYWD

Bakersfield Police are looking for the man suspected of spray painting the front of a business with homophobic slurs on New Year’s Day. He’s described as being 35-40 years old, white, and about 5’10 and 200 pounds. The incident at In Your Wildest Dreams on 19th and Q streets is being investigated as a hate crime, especially because a man with a similar description glued their doors shut it November. A woman reportedly threw a hammer through a window in September, while a burglar kicked in the doors Sunday and stole men’s clothes and jewelry.
