NEENAH, Wis. (WBAY) - Neenah Police are investigating vandalism to a church and school.

Peace Lutheran Church on S. Park Ave was tagged with “F--- Trump” in orange paint.

Horace Mann Middle School on Oak St was also vandalized. There are two blue tarps covering the vandalism on the side of the building.

Neenah police tell Action 2 News they believe the same person is responsible for the graffiti at the church and the school: They appeared to have the same writing and same paint color.

Police released a security camera photo of a suspect. They say he appears to have a white beard or facial hair. He might own white shoes.
