On Saturday, vandals smeared pig blood on a home in Santa Rosa, California, because a prosecution witness in the Derek Chauvin trial used to live there — but he no longer does.
In Minnesota, Chauvin, a former Minneapolis police officer, is on trial for the death of George Floyd last year.

Santa Rosa Police responded to a vandalized residence in west Santa Rosa at 3:07 a.m. on Saturday, April 17th, 2021. After being awoken by a group of subjects who threw a pig’s head on their front porch and splattered blood on the front of their home, the victim called Santa Rosa Police. The suspects, dressed in all black, fled while the victim dialed 911.
Officers arrived to find a decapitated pig’s head near the front porch and the front of the victim’s house smeared with what seemed to be animal blood. The perpetrators attempted criminal theft when they vandalized the victim’s home for more than $400.
Mr.Barry Brodd had previously lived in the victim’s home. Mr. Brodd recently appeared for the prosecution in the trial of Minneapolis cop Derrick Chauvin. It appears that the vandalism perpetrators were after Mr. Brodd because of his testimony. Mr. Brodd hasn’t lived at the house in a long time and is no longer a California resident. Mr. Brodd no longer resides in Santa Rosa, so the survivor seems to have been wrongly targeted.
A large hand statue in front of the Santa Rosa Plaza mall was vandalized 45 minutes later with a similar liquid, which was believed to be animal blood.
The suspects were seen fleeing the scene and matched the descriptions of the vandalism suspects.
Police released several photos, here are some of them:
In a public statement last week, the Santa Rosa Police Department distanced itself from Brodd’s testimony.
The judge is expected to give directions to the jury during closing arguments in the Chauvin trial on Monday.
