TULSA, Okla. — The Tulsa Police Department is asking the public for help in identifying several people suspected of painting BLM on a street in front of Tulsa City Hall.

The TPD Facebook post said they people in the photos are "persons of interest in the malicious injury to property that occurred on Oct. 10th, 2020, in the 2nd and Cincinnati area."

On Saturday, Oct. 10th, several groups held peaceful protests in downtown Tulsa. Tulsa police and others took part in Back the Blue march down Archer Street and Black Lives Matter protesters gathered at the Center of the Universe at the same time.

One group painted BLM in large yellow letters on 2nd Street in front of Tulsa City Hall. When officers responded, two protesters intervened and were arrested.

The crowd eventually left the area peacefully as police shut down 2nd Street on Saturday afternoon to power wash the freshly painted BLM from the street.

Now, police are asking if anyone has information about the people pictured above, to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.
