Four young men were arrested for allegedly defacing two buildings with black spray paint about 1:30 a.m. Saturday.
The graffiti was sprayed on two walls, one on the building at 2100 Milvia St., and the other at 2118 Milvia St., according to police reports. A security guard observed them, but did not try to stop them at first, but then noticed a police officer and flagged him down, said Capt. Bobby Miller of the Berkeley Police Department.
The officer stopped two suspects on Addison Street near Grant Street and one of them was carrying a can of black spray paint. The security guard identified them as two of the four spray painters. Marcus Durant, 22, was arrested on charges of malicious damage by spray painting. The second suspect arrested is a juvenile. The two other suspects were not arrested.
