At least seven homes targeted, UC says

The homes of seven UC officials and employees were vandalized in what university police believe were targeted attacks related to the Peopleâs Park development.
At least seven homes across Berkeley, Oakland and San Francisco were vandalized the night of March 4 into the next morning, including one where a brick was thrown into the window of a dwelling, according to UC Berkeley. Other vandalism included broken car windows, slashed tires and what police say were âhighly threatening, hateful graffiti.â Words such as âA murderer lives here,â and âIf youâll try it, weâll riotâ were written on the homes.
UC said there were no reported injuries, but employees were ârattledâ from the attacks in the middle of the night, some when the employeesâ children were home. The damage has since been repaired and cleaned.
