We don’t, of course, know if this is the same person who drew swastikas on the Glen Park mural, but it’s a nice arrest none the less.
From the Ingleside station newsletter:
An incredible graffiti arrest made in the Excelsior! The mural painted on
the side of the Central Drug Store at Santa Rosa and Mission has been targeted for months now, including having a swastika painted on the mural.
Last night, thanks to community members, store employees and Officers
Carrasco and Dominguez, a 40 year old resident (it just happened to be his
40th birthday yesterday) of the Excelsior was captured after he had spray
painted on the mural. This individual has been linked to numerous graffiti
incidents on the mural and today was charged by the District Attorney’s
Office on all counts of felony vandalism!
I think this is the same case, more deets:

Officers Dominguez and Carrasco were conducting a traffic stop when they
were alerted by bystanders to a man who had just defaced a nearby mural.
This particular mural had been the target of several recent vandalisms. The
officers gave chase and caught the man. The suspect admitted to spray
painting the mural today and several other previous times. One witness also
said that as she told the suspect to stop the vandalism, he walked over and
sprayed the paint at her from close range. The man was arrested for felony
vandalism, assault with a chemical, and resisting arrest. Report number
