UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital vandalized, leaving dozens of broken windows – NBC Bay Area

Dozens of broken windows at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital in San Francisco recently drew the attention of patients, neighbors and passersby.

According to a campus police bulletin, windows have been broken since May and the hospital was not the only location affected. A building on the Mount Zion campus was also vandalized.

“I think it’s obvious that this is someone who doesn’t know what’s going on here and the importance of what’s going on here,” said Sean Smith, the patient’s parent.

NBC Bay Area walked the perimeter of the children’s hospital Friday and counted 67 different plaques that were broken.

A security camera captured the suspect’s vehicle and another captured an image of his face, according to UCSF police.

In a statement from the children’s hospital, a spokesperson confirmed that an arrest had been made in this case.

The hospital is cooperating with the District Attorney’s Office in the pending trial, but a spokesman had no information on the cost of the damage or why the windows still haven’t been repaired so many months after the attack.
