Graffiti Vandal Spray Paints Homophobic Slurs on Buildings in Queens: Police

A spray-painting vandal has written homophobic slurs on buildings in Queens more than a dozen times since late last year, police say.

The man has struck at least 15 times since December, authorities said.

The suspect has only vandalized a few buildings in Astoria because he goes back to the same places many times, officials say.

In most cases, police say he writes former President Barack Obama’s name with a homophobic slur, authorities said.

The most recent vandalism was Monday, police said. 

Police on Thursday released surveillance footage of the graffiti vandal in hopes of catching him.
