The victim gave the officer the name of an uncharged suspect who was not named in the report because no charges had yet been filed. He said the uncharged suspect had accused him of sleeping with the suspect’s girlfriend in the past. Nothing had happened with the quarrel for several months until the victim received a text message sent from the cell phone of the uncharged suspect’s girlfriend the evening before the spray painting occurred.
He had not seen that message until after the damage was discovered and he believed the uncharged suspect had used his girlfriend’s phone to send the text. In a text exchange after the damage was found, the victim said the uncharged suspect had used the expression “Tag you’re it” and he felt use of the word “tag” made him certain the suspect had done the damage.
