SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Authorities are investigating after a pride flag was vandalized in South Burlington.

Police say someone damaged the flag early Thursday morning at a property on Barnsley Street and that the crime is being handled as a “bias incident.”

Police say acts like this “create harm in the community and erode the sense of inclusion our LGBTQIA+ neighbors deserve.”

The incident happens just as Pride Month is about to kick off in June.
