Tips sought on graffiti vandals in CdA

Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for tips that help solve three graffiti cases in Coeur d’Alene. 

Surveillance photos from the Pita Pit, 320 E. Sherman Ave., show three men spray painting the back door area of the store on Oct. 14 at 2:36 a.m.

Then sometime between Oct. 20 and Oct. 21, someone spray painted the brick walls and basalt columns at the Fallen Heroes Plaza in Cherry Hill Park. Also, the water tower on Tubbs Hill was spray painted between Oct. 14 and Oct. 21.

Police don’t know if the cases are related.

Anyone with information on the culprits is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (208) 667-2111 or toll free at (888) 667-2111.

Suspects sought in CdA Pita Pita assault

Two men assaulted another man in downtown Coeur d’Alene last month, and police are asking for help identifying them. 

The victim, Nicholas Casqueiro, declined medical attention after the Aug. 22 assault outside the Pita Pit, 320 E. Sherman Ave., but his mother called police a few days later and said he’d suffered “extensive injuries to his face and mouth,” police announced today.

Police released surveillance photos showing two men attacking Casqueiro about 12:24 a.m. as he sat with a woman in the restaurant’s outside area.

Witnesses said the fight appears to have started when the woman said something to the men as they walked by. One man hit Casqueiro in the face with a chair; another kicked him after he fell to the ground. A third possible suspect (pictured) was pictured sitting near Casqueiro.

Anyone with information on the men’s identities is asked to call police at (208) 769-2320.
