DECATUR, Ind. (WFFT) - Hanna Nuttman Park looked very different once there was evidence of vandalism in the grass leaving quite a few people disappointed.
Decatur Police Department notified the public via Facebook in hopes of finding out what exactly happened.
"Why the park? It's for the community and the kids. Why would anybody want to do that?,” Chief Leonard Corral asked.
Police say someone drove through the newly planted grass seed where the future home of The REV Sports Complex will be which will have seven brand new baseball and softball fields and added parking.
"Better drainage, dug outs, batting cages, with new fields with the new concession stands around the field, new updated bathrooms, that energized the community," Chief Corral explained.
The city's goal is to raise $1 million for the project, and it's based on donations.
"I think a lot of it has to deal with it being a small town, and there's really nothing for people to do around here,"resident Kateline Nunez said.
“If it was an accident, come see us and tell us, but if no one came forward, it says to me in my line of work it was a vandalism act,” Chief Corral added.
Police are working with surrounding businesses checking camera footage from this weekend for the investigation.
They are asking anyone with information to contact the Decatur Police Department (260) 724-8646.
