Four youths allegedly affiliated with an El Sereno gang vandalized Alhambra Park on Monday with "an enormous amount of graffiti," the Alhambra Police Department posted on Facebook. The suspects were charged with felony vandalism.
The suspects allegedly tagged benches, gates, pathways, and walls, according to Alhambra PD. When officers received a report and arrived at the scene, the suspects tried to escape but were caught without further incident.
Alhambra PD did not post photos of the graffiti. "Sorry, but no pictures will be shown because their criminal work does not need to be made famous," the agency wrote. "Thanks for reporting this and keeping Alhambra safe!"
The park was also vandalized on Nov. 5. Monterey Park resident Abel Samano, 18, allegedly tagged the Veterans Memorial Wall at the park and was arrested for felony vandalism.
