Thirsk police are appealing for witnesses after damage was caused to the local police station.
At around 2.40am on Thursday 16 May 2013, black paint was sprayed on the front door and one of the windows of the station.
Around the time of the incident a man was seen running along Kirkgate wearing a balaclava, a dark-coloured jumper, and grey tracksuit bottoms with stripes down the leg. He had a slim build with muscular shoulders.
