Someone stole a Pride flag from a Starbucks in Clifton, Virginia, during one of two vandalisms at the coffee shop this week, police say.

Fairfax County police say someone broke the the front window of the business on Union Mill Road early Wednesday morning, stole the rainbow flag from inside and left.

Then, on Thursday morning, someone broke in again and destroyed property at the store, police said.

Photos from a News4 viewer show the front glass windows at the store shattered.

Police believe both burglaries happened between 3-4 a.m.

Authorities are asking anyone with information to call 703-814-7000.
