Several media outlets in Regina were targeted with graffiti overnight on Monday.
As of 10 a.m., the Regina Police Service said it had three reports about graffiti from three different outlets, however social media reports put it at five outlets.
In each case, the message was the same: “gangstalking human torture”.
Gangstalking is a term often used online to refer to organized stalking and harassment.
It was sprayed onto outside walls at the building that houses the Leader-Post on Park Street, and the CTV News building just outside the city. It was painted onto an outside door at Global News. The phrase was left on a window at Harvard Broadcasting on Rose Street, and onto the sidewalk in front of the Bell Media radio station on Albert Street.
Police said, seeing as each of the spray painted phrases were the same, they’re treating the graffiti incidents as related.
Also happening early Tuesday morning, the CBC Regina building was broken into. A man reportedly broke a window to get into the building, then went on a bit of a rampage in the TV studio and newsroom. No one was hurt.
A 19-year-old man was arrested and charged with break and enter. Police said they were treating the break-in as separate from the graffiti incidents.
