Video shows new suspect in Israeli flag vandalism on Ben Franklin Parkway

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Police are searching for a suspect seen on video defacing the Israeli flag along the Ben Franklin Parkway in Center City Philadelphia.

The incident happened on Tuesday.

Video released by the district attorney's office shows a man spraying the flag with red dye or paint.

Action News was there earlier this week when another suspect, 26-year-old Antoine Guyton, was arrested.

He was originally charged with vandalism, but charges were rescinded when video emerged showing a different man defacing the flag.
