The U.S. Park Police have issued a warrant for a man they suspect of "acts of racist vandalism" in parks in D.C. and on the George Washington Memorial Parkway.
Ronald Edward Bost Jr. is wanted for damaging government property, according to a Thursday press release.
Bost, 51, is 6-feet-2 and 210 pounds with a scar on his upper lip and the back of his head, the Park Police said. He has tattoos on both hands, according to police, including faded swastikas on his left knuckle.
Bost frequents sites including the National Mall, the Iwo Jima Memorial, Columbia Island and Arlington County libraries, according to police.
The Park Police ask anyone with information about Bost to contact Detective K.B. Fornshill 202-610-8751. Anyone who sees him is asked to call 911.
