WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Police are investigating an incident of vandalism that left a swastika on the side of a Main Street structure.
On Tuesday at 6 p.m., police received a call reporting a swastika on the Berkshire Regional Transportation Authority bus shelter on Main Street (Route 2) across from Hopkins Hall on the Williams College campus.
Officer John McConnell responded to the scene and reported that the symbol was etched into the plastic on the inside of the shelter's front panel.
McConnell told a BRTA bus driver, who reported the incident to their supervisor, according to the police report.
The BRTA said it was notified by Williamstown Police on Tuesday evening and sent a BRTA crew to the scene Wednesday morning to clean and remove the vandalism. BRTA replaced the bus shelter panel on  Friday.
