FLOSSMOOR, Ill. (STMW) – Homewood-Flossmoor High School is investigating an act of vandalism that caused damage estimated at several thousand dollars to the south suburban school.

Homewood-Flossmoor Community High School District 233 Supt. Von Mansfield said numerous windows were broken on the north and south buildings some time Monday.

The incident comes just weeks after four students were attacked after the first football game of the year.

Mansfield said the two incidents appear to be unrelated.

District 233 board member Andrew Lindstrom said at Tuesday’s board meeting that he is saddened by the violence.

“To know all the good things that are going on here … and one person tries to take that away — like the incident after the first football game. Those are just hard to take sometimes,” Lindstrom said.

Mansfield said a police report was filed on the vandalism but no arrests had been made.
