CONCORD - Police are investigating an act of vandalism at Concord High School where they said someone scraped wording into a student's car directed at his sexual orientation.
Spencer Beaupre said he noticed the derogatory word scratched under his passenger door handle last week. It was the same week the school held events highlighting issues for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender students.
"Most people are quite accepting - its just there are a few exceptions, and they are very loud," said Beaupre.
His car has been scratched with keys a few times this year, but this time the derogatory word was sent him to the school resource officer, who reported the incident to the Concord Police Department.
Police are investigating the incident as criminal mischief, but the person who wrote the vandalism could end up being charged with a hate crime under RSA 651-6, said Lt. Timothy O'Malley.
Beaupre said he's handling the incident well, but he worries that someone else could be targeted next.
"I don't want it to happen to other kids, and that is what was really upsetting to me," Beaupre said.
Police have no suspects at this time. Anyone with information is urged to contact Concord Police or the Concord Regional Crimeline at 226-3100.
