BRISTOL, CT (WFSB) -

The Bristol Police Department is looking for a vandal who has single handedly turned a family friendly park into an eyesore.

Parents visiting Page Park on Friday were shielding their children from a graphic painting of a nude woman.

The vandalism was placed right at the entrance to the pond and was unavoidable to many park-goers.

Eyewitness News caught up with a parent, who goes on daily walks with his son, and he said it must have happened overnight.

“This actually here, is all new,” Jesse Pescetelli, of Bristol, said. “This wasn't here last week.” 

Judy Wright, of Bristol, is a street artist herself, but said the vandalism is “not good art.”

“This is where little kids go, you don't do this in a park where kids go,” Wright said.

Parents have complained and even the city's youth are taken aback by the crude graffiti.

“If we can show children something that's positive and nude, then that's great,” Katherine Adams, of Bristol, said.  “But if you're going to make it into something like this then I think that's very inappropriate.”

Eyewitness News reached out to the city’s public works, which they promised a quick cleanup.

Police continue to investigate the vandalism. Anyone with any information is asked to call the Bristol Police Department at 860-584-3011.
