Police: Man arrested in anti-Trump vandalism case


Police have arrested a man for allegedly vandalizing a Chestnut Hill grocery store.

On Sunday, 33-year-old Evan Brown from Brooklyn, New York was arrested for his involvement in the vandalizing of Fresh Market. Police say Brown was charges with criminal mischief and other related offenses.

According to police, the incident happened just after midnight on Nov. 25th at the Fresh Market on Germantown Ave. 

Surveillance video captured footage of the two men approaching the building as one of them spray painted an anti-Trump sentiment. The second suspect can be seen taking photos or video of the vandalism.

Both suspects fled on foot. Police say damages were estimated between $3,000 and $10,000 due to the composition of stone used in the construction of the wall. 

First Deputy City Solicitor Craig Straw told the Philadelphia Inquirer on Saturday that prosecutors had informed his office that police didn't submit a warrant requesting charges against the other suspect, 32-year-old Duncan Lloyd. He said Lloyd, who has been on a two-week leave without pay, will complete 40 hours of community service.
