PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Philadelphia police are investigating another incident of vandalism at a Holocaust memorial site in the city.
This is the second time in one week the Horwitz Wasserman Holocaust Memorial Plaza was targeted on the Ben Franklin Parkway.
Officers were called to the scene on the 1600 block of Arch Street at approximately 1:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Authorities say a man carrying bags of trash had dumped garbage on the memorial.
Eszter Kutas, the director of the Holocaust Remembrance Foundation, provided Action News with the following statement on the incident:
"We are sad to confirm another incident of vandalism at the Horwitz-Wasserman Holocaust Memorial Plaza that took place yesterday (Tuesday) around 11 am. An individual emptied several trash cans at the Memorial Plaza."
Kutas provided images of the suspect and vandalism left behind at the remembrance site.
The suspect is described as an unknown male wearing a dark coat, light pants, dark boots, and a knit hat.
On Sunday, a swastika was found spray-painted on a building adjacent to the memorial, which is dedicated to remembering victims of the Holocaust and educating others.
Action News obtained surveillance footage of the suspect in that incident.
Kutas noted that based on the video, the man dumping trash does not appear to be the same vandal who drew the swastika.
