ATTICA — If you know anything about graffiti painted on a downtown building wall, you could get some legal graffiti of your own.
As in a free tattoo.
Revelation Ink is offering a reward of a $200 tattoo for any information that can help find who was responsible for vandalism to the side of Revelation’s building or to the railroad trestle over Route 98 that same morning.
Police Chief Dean Hendershott said the graffiti, which was not racist or vile, has been painted over.
“We have a couple of leads we’re working on but any information would help,” he said.
The vandalism happened around 5 a.m. July 11.
Surveillance video shows two people, appearing to be boys in their teens or possibly early 20s, one on a skateboard and the other on a bicycle, come down Water Street, stop, and paint something on the side of the building at the corner of Main Street.
The two are there for three minutes before disappearing around the corner.
Minutes later, three people come into view on Water, one carrying a skateboard. And five minutes later, four come back along Water, one on a bike, one on a skateboard and two walking, including one holding a skateboard.
The vandalism angered Mayor Nathan Montford.
“Why would anyone want to destroy, deface, vandalize or do anything of a matter in which makes their own community look bad?” he wrote on Voices of Village of Attica Facebook page. “I understand kids will be kids, boys will be boys, girls will be girls and all...But what I do not understand, nor will I tolerate, are actions such as this in our Village! This is both unacceptable, and disrespectful!”
Anyone with information can contact village police at (585) 591-0881.
