Detroit police are working to find a suspect connected to a recent incident in which a QLine streetcar was tagged with graffiti.

The vehicle was spray-painted in silver and black at about 12:45 a.m. Feb. 13 in the 7500 block of Woodward, authorities said in a statement.

Surveillance images show a Hyundai Sonata connected to the tagging of a QLine streetcar on Woodward early Feb. 13.

Police said the vandal reached a gated area housing the streetcars that are slated to come online this spring.

Investigators learned the person “was dropped off on John R and Custer by an unknown driver of a silver Hyundai Sonata at 12:38 a.m., then picked up after the incident, in the same location” about 12 minutes later, according to the release.

Authorities released surveillance images Friday of the Hyundai, which was seen turning north on Woodward.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Detroit Police Department at (313) 596-2200 or Crime Stoppers of Michigan at (800) SPEAK-UP.
