(Toledo, OH) Unknown vandals egged a Toledo tattoo parlor this weekend. We noticed the vandalism while keeping an eye on a number of neo-Nazi skinheads who have appeared in the Glass City this weekend.
I have not been able to determine if there has been damage beyond the egging. A person answering the phone at the Lucky Duck tattoo parlor said that he was not authorized to speak, and that no one was available to make a statement.
The Lucky Duck has been associated with white supremacist activity since the aborted NSM rally on October 15. This picture, recently posted on the NSM Michigan unit website, was taken outside the tattoo parlor. Several of the skinheads in the picture have been spotted at the establishment in the weeks since the rally.
Sources in the local anarchist movement informed me that they were accosted by a man with a handgun early Saturday. The activists were engaging in late night surveillance when the "Nazi" ran out from behind the Lucky Duck and pointed the weapon at them.
While I noticed quite a few skinheads in and around the Lucky Duck, I did not see any uniforms or insignias that directly tied them to NSM. I did receive word yesterday from a knowledgeable source who indicated that NSM members spotted in Toledo with uniforms and swastikas would be immediately arrested; perhaps this is why the skinheads were in street clothes.
Of course, it could be possible that the Lucky Duck just happens to attract people with freshly-shaved heads, and that it just so happened yesterday that a bunch of happy, fun-loving skinheads milled about in peace, love, and harmony.
