Pittsburgh Police seeking information on graffiti vandals.

By Terri Hill | October 21, 2018

The Pittsburgh Police are investigating graffiti vandals who in recent weeks have spray-painted graffiti tags in several spots throughout the city.

Police say one tag, reading “Gipsy,” is typically accompanied by another unreadable tag and found throughout the Northside. They are often large (several feet wide) and placed in high-visibility areas.

Another tag, reading “Waxn,” is found throughout East Liberty, mainly on Penn avenue. Approximately 40 light poles have been tagged on Penn Avenue between 5th Avenue and the Wilkinsburg border.Screenshot_20181020-144226

A witness told police they saw two white males, one with a beard, recently painting graffiti in an undisclosed location

Anyone with information on the vandals’ identities or whereabouts is asked to call Detective Alphonso Sloan at (412) 495-6052. Callers can remain confidential.
