Early Monday, October 24, 2022, the UW-Madison Police Department received reports of graffiti outside the Memorial Union and at the adjacent Alumni Park. Through our investigation, we’ve determined the extensive damage was caused by two unknown people who accessed the area that morning at approximately 4:00 a.m. The two suspects spray painted multiple walls, signs, boats, displays, memorials, and pieces of art. The cost of the damage and clean-up is estimated to total at least $30,000.

The two unknown suspects arrived and departed towards the Lowell Center on Langdon Street. They were well-covered and masked, making their identities difficult to determine. However, we’re hoping community members may have information about the suspects and the incident and are willing to share details.
