WENHAM, MASS. (WHDH) - Wenham police are turning to the public for help as they investigate the vandalism of two pride flags over the weekend.

Officers responding to a report that the rainbow flag outside the First Church of Wenham had been cut down overnight Saturday soon learned that a progress flag at the Wenham Museum had also been torn down, according to Wenham Police Chief Kevin DiNapoli.

Wenham Police also continue to investigate the theft of the rainbow flag from First Church of Wenham at the end of May.

“With the times that were in right now, this is a really emotional event for a lot of folks it really impacts a lot of people because of what was stolen. And we don’t take that lightly. It’s important that citizens know and the folks that live and work here know that were all working on this together to make sure this doesn’t happen again,” DiNapoli said in a statement.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Wenham Police Department at 978-468-4000.
