- New tonight, Philadelphia police are investigating two incidents of hateful and racist vandalism. We're told both incidents happened in the last few days. One involved an anti-gay slur written on a building at 10th and Vine.

The other was a racial slur aimed at African Americans written on the side of the William Pierce School. That's on the 2400 block of Montrose Street in South Philadelphia. City crews already cleaned up both cases of vandalism. The police commissioner tweeted that the recent surge in racism will not be tolerated and she wants anyone with information about the vandals to contact the police.
