Norman woman arrested in racist vandalism incidents
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Norman police say they’ve arrested a 45-year-old woman suspected of spray painting racist, anti-gay and anti-Semitic graffiti on Democratic Party offices in Norman and Oklahoma City in recent weeks.
Police say they suspect Allison Johnson of Norman was also connected to vandalism at a school and arts center in the city.
Johnson was being booked Thursday afternoon into the Cleveland County Detention Center on a complaint of terroristic threats. No criminal charges have been filed, and jail records don’t indicate if Johnson has an attorney.
The vandalism was discovered Wednesday morning on the windows and sidewalk outside the Cleveland County Democratic Party headquarters in Norman. Similar epithets were found spray-painted March 28 outside the Democratic Party headquarters in Oklahoma City and the Oklahoma City office of the Chickasaw Nation.
