The Vancouver Police Department is investigating after three windows and a pair of front doors were smashed early Saturday at Heathen Brewing Feral Public House in downtown Vancouver.
No motive, however, has been determined yet, department spokesperson Kim Kapp said Monday.
A GoFundMe page was created to help cover the damages caused by the vandalism. It surpassed its goal of $5,000 and had raised $7,007 as of press time.
The restaurant, 1109 Washington St., is up and running, albeit with plywood over the broken windows and doors. Nothing immediately is changing now, according to Fernando Thomas, shift lead at Heathen. The management team is taking the incident seriously and focusing on keeping everyone safe.
Originally, the restaurant’s GoFundMe page alleged the incident was an act of protest against the restaurant for the “Spring Fling Drag Brunch,” which it is hosting later this month.
As of press time, however, there was no longer any reference to the brunch or protest on the GoFundMe page.
The allegations are speculation, Thomas said. Though, it seemed coincidental, given the restaurant began receiving threats earlier in the week, he added.
