A word was spray-painted by a vandal in Elmhurst but the town's deputy police chief is keeping it secret.
The same word was spray-painted in two different places, police said.
One silver word was spray-painted on a fence near the corner of Columbia Avenue and Willow Road overnight Saturday, police said. The other silver word was spotted on the pedestrian underpass at North and Emroy avenues Sunday.
Elmhurst Deputy Police Chief Dominic Panico will not disclose the word or anything else about the vandalism, according to an email sent from the department.
"Per Deputy Chief Panico, the details in grafitti incidents will not be released," the email said.
