Riverside Park Bathrooms Vandalized

Just as many are expected to descend onto Riverside Park for Archery Fest this weekend, the Yankton Police Department discovered some major vandalism on Thursday.

According to Yankton Police Chief Jason Foote, one of the men’s restrooms at Riverside Park near the softball field was vandalized sometime Wednesday night. The vandalism was reported to law enforcement on Thursday morning by a passerby who flagged down a police officer.

Foote adds that minor damage was also done to the new bathrooms at the water treatment plant.

Its unknown if this vandalism is connected to the “devious licks” challenge, which has been trending on TikTok It has caused issues nationwide, as reports of students destroying and vandalizing bathrooms have grown. TikTok announced they were working on removing videos connected to the “devious licks” trend.

Foote adds that the case is under investigation and they are looking for possible suspects. Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Yankton Police Department.
