Providence Amtrak station vandalism causes hundreds of dollars in damage

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — Amtrak Police said Tuesday the Providence train station was vandalized over the weekend.

Police said six males and one female entered the station illegally just after 2 a.m. Saturday.

Alexandre Vilardo, an investigator for Amtrak, said the group jumped the fence and made their way over to the platform area.

Vilardo said they then started spray painting different parts of the station, causing hundreds of dollars in damages.

He said that the group then took off towards the Providence Place mall. The mall reported similar damages done to their property.

Amtrak Police believe that the same group of people were involved with the mall vandalism.
