AUSTIN (KJCE) -- Austin Police are seeking the public's help in identifying a suspect responsible for graffiti at Austin's newly-opened Central Library.

Officials say the vandalism, which caused $1,178.81 in damages, occurred just after 10:30 p.m. on October 28 - the day the new facility opened to the public.

Security cameras show the suspect arrived at the library blanketed in a white bed comforter. Underneath the comforter, he was wearing a black, long-sleeve shirt with tan khaki shorts and black sneakers. He was also observed carrying a red/pink backpack.

The suspect, pictured below, is described as a white male, standing 5' 9" to 5' 11", weighing between 160 and 175 pounds with short brown hair. He appears to be in his mid to late 20s.

Anyone with information on the suspect is asked to call APD Detective Michael Monroe by phone at (512) 974-5791.
