Juvenile suspected of scratching racist words into a Boise car

Boise Police detectives have identified a juvenile male as the person they believe is responsible for scratching racist words into a car last week at a business near 35th and State streets.

Detectives have forwarded their investigation on to the Ada County Juvenile Court and charges are pending. The case was initially investigated as potential malicious harassment -- Idaho’s hate crime law.

The car was scratched and dented on July 13. The juvenile’s name was not released by police on Wednesday.
