Veterans Village suspect

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Veterans Village said a temporary home for a homeless veteran in downtown Las Vegas was vandalized Thursday night.

According to the property, the vandalism happened around 9:30 p.m. on Nov. 7. 

In security footage, a man is seen using a large rock to smash windows and a glass door on the container home. The home was meant for a veteran. 

Veterans Village II, one of several of the organization's facilities, is located on North 21st Street near Fremont Street.

"To attack a veterans facility, which is sacred ground, right before Veteran's Day is sick," said founder Arnold Stalk.

On Saturday, Stalk mentioned he was offering a reward of $1,500 that could lead to the arrest and conviction of the suspect. He urged anyone who may know anything to contact Las Vegas Metropolitan police.

The damage is estimated to cost thousands of dollars.
