Tacoma man says vandal apologized, hates Halloween for religious reasons

McKenzie said the man dislikes Halloween for religious reasons, and said he's worried about the man being on the loose Wednesday.

“I’ve seen him with posters that say "Halloween is hellfire," McKenzie said. "So he definitely doesn’t like the holidays, but I think he has some mental issues. So the cops definitely need to talk to this guy.”
