ROGUE RIVER, Ore. — Over the weekend, the Rogue River Police Department received calls that two local businesses were tagged with graffiti. Officials say it was not typical spray painted designs, but what they refer to as “slaps.”
“Slaps” are a type of graffiti where vandals will have a pre-drawn design and will glue it up. Police say it could take a matter of seconds, which makes it harder to catch the offenders.
The two “slap” graffiti faces were found outside a hair salon and a sandwich shop in two different parts of town.
In addition to the two faces, police also found a spray painted symbol with burnt candles near one of the businesses that is consistent with Satanism or Wicca.
Rogue river community members were also shocked to hear of the weekend graffiti trend as well.
“I’ve been here my whole life, and I’ve never, I mean, not that I can remember ever seen any kind of graffiti, not randomly like that,” said Rogur River resident Amanda Shonk.
Rogue River Police ask anyone with information about the incidents to contact them at 541-582-4931.
