The Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity club house was vandalized on Tuesday. The house, which is currently unoccupied,, was broken into and spray painted both inside and out.
Andy St. Hilaire, 22, was on his way home Tuesday morning when he saw police cars in front of the frat house.
“I noticed that the cops were in front of the house and that there was graffiti on the side of the building,” said St. Hilaire, a senior Public Administration student from Miami.
The frat house, which sits on the corner of Cleveland and Wailes Streets, looked fine at first glance, but a closer look showed the graffiti that marked its walls. The marks didn’t seem to come from a gang or any other organization that might have an issue with the Kappas.
Kappa Alumni, who take care of the house and filed the police report, assessed the damages on Tuesday but declined to comment on the incident. The Tallahassee Police Department was also unavailable for comment but a representative reported officers were working on the case and that it would remain open until more information could be gathered.
Kappa Alpha Psi is currently inactive on FAMU’s campus but is preparing to celebrate its 75th anniversary.
