Philadelphia police investigate multiple anti-Columbus day vandalism incidents

Philadelphia police are investigating two incidents of vandalism that called for an end to Columbus Day.

Monday morning, around 9 a.m., officers responded to the History of Italian Immigration Museum on the 1800 block of Passyunk Avenue.

Officers found messages voicing opposition to President Trump, Columbus Day, and fascism spray painted on the building, as well as several nearby manhole covers.

Around 11:20 a.m. officers found similar messages spray painted on the Christopher Columbus statue at Marconi Park, on the 2800 block of South Broad Street.

Detectives returned to the scene of each vandalism incident Monday night looking for evidence and surveillance video. The video shows just one vandal on East Passyunk Avenue. No arrests have been made.
