In California’s San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles law enforcement arrested Edelidio David Wallace, 64, suspected of attacking three Jewish-owned businesses, acts that are now being reviewed as possibly motivated by hate.

Police believe that Wallace, charged with felony vandalism, allegedly threw cement bricks and rocks through the buildings’ windows and doors on Monday. Two of the rocks featured the phrases “Glory” and “Pay-up” written on them.

All of the crimes took place within a two-mile radius.

The LAPD Major Crimes Division continued its investigations into further acts of vandalism nearby, considering that they may have received damage as part of the same criminal spree. Police have put out a request for more information, seeking other potential victims.
