Update: Video released of La Crosse “Y” vandalism



A broken window and glass spattered with paint show the evidence of a break-in at the Dahl Family Y in La Crosse

There’s no estimate yet of property damage done by an intruder at the La Crosse Family Y.

The CEO of the Family Y, Bill Soper, said a window was broken on the West Avenue side of the building either late Thursday or early Friday.

Nearby windows were splattered with paint from the inside, furniture was tipped over, and there was damage to the main reception area and the Prime Time section of the first floor.

The Y opened three hours later than usual Friday so staffers could clean up the vandalism.
