(Editor’s Note: The following info is from a press release issued this week by World Series Park.)
After a successful fundraiser for multiple sclerosis at World Series Park on Halloween, vandals struck the park between 7 and 8:30 p.m. Pumpkins left from the daytime event were smashed all over the place, and the snack bar serving door was pried open and a camera was stolen. The door was also left jammed. Eggs had been broken on the building.
On Monday, Saugus Police were called to investigate. They will be looking at the surveillance video to try to identify those who caused the damage.
“I can’t understand why people do such things,” said World Series Park Superintendent Bob Davis, who found the damage on Monday.
“What do they get out of it? If we can identify those responsible, we will ask for restitution and prosecution,” Davis said. “Our state-of-art cameras and security system should be able to identify those who vandalized and stole from our facility. How ironic, during the day we had a great community event at which we raised funds for a dreaded disease and at night these hoodlums come along and try to destroy the place. The video shows both boys and girls between the ages of 13 to 18. We intend to identify them.”
Anyone who witnessed this vandalism or with knowledge of it is asked to contact the Saugus Police or Bob Davis at 781-233-4555.
