Police have arrested a suspect after two SEPTA police vehicles were vandalized in North Philadelphia.

20-year-old Dorian Murray has been charged with criminal mischief and institutional vandalism.

The incident happened early Saturday morning near the intersection of Broad and Glenwood streets.

The sides of both vehicles were spray painted with blue paint.

SEPTA Police Chief Thomas J. Nestel III used his Twitter account on Saturday to post pictures of the damage, and issue a terse warning to those responsible:

"I'm told that graffiti is a cry for attention," the tweet said. "The cry worked. Somebody will now be getting my undivided attention."

Police have not commented on what may have motivated Murray.
