After reviewing CCTV footage, police believe the man may have targeted the radio station due to the images of Indigenous women painted on the two windows which he punched and then defaced.

The Hate Crimes Prevention Team is investigating and hate motivation is suspected.

The suspect is described as a man in his 30s, with a thin build and a shaved head, wearing no shirt, black shorts, white shoes and a black cap.
