Philadelphia Police are investigating a case of vandalizing after a suspects/suspects spray painted white supremacist graffiti outside of a black-owned Deli in South Philly. The incident was reported on Wednesday by Larry Boone, the owner of the AM Deli at 4th & Wharton Streets, according to a report from THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER.
Boone said he reported the incident to police on Wednesday evening. The graffiti was spray painted on the side of an ATM in front of the deli. Boone said he did not know how long the graffiti had been painted there. Boone said he was shocked by the incident.
It’s kind of shocking. It’s really unfamiliar for this neighborhood. Even though we grew up in this neighborhood in the 70’s & 80’s, still it’s a little different than something we’re used to.”
Boone told The Inquirer. Police say there are checking surveillance video from nearby homes and business to see if the incident was captured. No suspects have been named and no arrests have been made so far.
