A pair of 12-year-olds have been interviewed by Police over in relation to graffiti containing homophobic abuse that was sprayed on homes around St. Helier.
At the end of October, the outside walls of approximately six homes in and around the areas of Rouge Bouillon, Springfield and residential homes near Haute Vallée School were branded with black markings.
The graffiti included homophobic slurs against the LGBTQ+ community and other offensive language.
Giving an update, a Police spokesperson confirmed today that "two suspects, aged 12 years old, were identified and interviewed in the presence of their parents".
They added that the case - described as "ongoing" - will now be referred to the Law Officers' Department "for a decision due to their age."
