City police are searching for a suspect after a business and several vehicles were vandalized early Tuesday morning.

Edmonton police said seven vehicles and It’s Yours furniture store near 119 Street and 127 Avenue had their windows broken.

Ray Eltawil, the owner of It’s Yours, said police called him around 6 a.m. Tuesday to tell him his business had been vandalized. He said when he got to the scene he saw glass everywhere and eight windows were broken.

“Nothing is stolen from inside, just the broken windows,” said Eltawil. “I just opened my business a few months ago.”

He said the vandalism comes at an especially tough time as he’s still dealing with the economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic. Eltawil was dealing with his insurance company Tuesday afternoon to find out how much of the damage would be covered.

Police said they expect to release CCTV footage of the vandalism.
