Several downtown buildings –- including one that formerly housed the Hands On Children’s Museum at 11th Avenue Southwest and Capitol Way -– were vandalized over the weekend, according to Olympia Police Sgt. Dan Duncan.

“There were several businesses hit,” he said. “We had glass broken out and some anarchist graffiti that showed up.” 

The damage was reported on Sunday morning, Duncan said. Glass was broken out of a car windshield, and several Intercity Transit bus stops in the area, as well.  

“We have no leads at this point and time,” Duncan said.
