Damage was reported to the bicentennial mural on Sunday at 1 a.m.

The mural, which is attached to the outside of the brick building at 22 E. Main St., received damage to the lower left corner.

“My guess would be probably somebody walking by in the middle of the night,” said Norwalk Police Chief Dave Light. “Or it could be kids.”

Officers said it appeared as though someone ripped the mural by pulling it as they walked by.

“Several grommets were ripped off and there was a tear about 10 inches long,” officers said.

Light expressed his concern for the mural and its location, given the amount of hard work and time the artists dedicated to the project.

“It should be somewhere on a main street, not a side street,” he said.
