Martin Place Lindt Cafe vandalised

Martin Place Lindt Cafe vandalised

The Lindt cafe in Sydney’s Martin Place, the location of the deadly siege in December, has been vandalised overnight.

Police were called to the cafe just after midnight, following reports a number of windows had been smashed.

Officers say the windows have been broken by rocks, and investigations are continuing.

Police are hopeful of catching the offenders, with CCTV cameras lining the Martin Place square.

It comes just over 2 months after the cafe reopened, after gunman Man Haron Monis took 18 people hostage in December, leading to deaths of Tori Johnson and Katrina Dawson.

An inquest in to the siege is currently underway in Sydne, to determine what led Monis to undertake this deadly act.
