BIPD Seeks Public's Help After Vandals Cause $5,000 in Damage at Battle Point Park

Battle Point Park Vandalism

UPDATE: The BIPD has identified the people involved in the vandalism. Thank you for your attention on this matter.


The Bainbridge Island Police Department and Bainbridge Island Metro Park & Recreation District are asking for help from the community to identify suspects who caused $5,000 in damage at Battle Point Park.

The vehicles involved are a white Toyota Prius, a white Subaru (Outback or Forester), and a black sedan of an unknown make and model.

On Wednesday, August 22 and Thursday, August 23 the vehicles damaged the gravel lot near the baseball fields and the lawn near the observatory.

The vandalism incident on August 22 began around 8:30 p.m. with all three cars involved. A person on a bicycle was also seen with the vehicles. The Subaru and Prius returned later that night to continue the damage. The investigation into the incident determined the white Prius returned sometime late on August 23 or during the early morning hours of Friday, August 24 and added to the damage already caused to the lawn.

“The continued vandalism to Battle Point Park deprives our community members of one of the Island’s best features,” said Chief Matthew Hamner.  “We are asking for your help to assist with the investigation into this latest incident, so we can keep Battle Point Park safe and open to enjoy at the end of our summer season.”

If you have any information about the possible vehicles or suspects involved in the incident, please contact the Bainbridge Island Police Department at 206-842-5211 or call 911.
