Vandals damage 24 cars in Mayfair

Van­dals used spray paint and an­oth­er un­known sub­stance to dam­age 24 vehicles on a May­fair Street late Fri­day or early Sat­urday, Phil­adelphia po­lice said.

Of­ficers from the 15th dis­trict went to the 3000 block of Knorr St. at about 7:30 a.m. on Sat­urday after a res­id­ent re­por­ted that someone had spray painted the word “FELO” on the rear pas­sen­ger-side door of her white 2010 Toyota Co­rolla.

An­oth­er man then ap­proached the of­ficers and re­por­ted that oth­er cars had been sim­il­arly van­dal­ized on the 3100, 3200 and 3300 block of Knorr St.

All were parked on the north side of the street. Some of the graf­fiti was ra­cially derog­at­ory, po­lice said.

There were 24 dam­aged cars in all. In ad­di­tion to paint, the van­dals poured an un­known li­quid onto cars to dam­age them.
