Several downtown businesses were tagged by vandals last week, according to police.
Seven businesses were defaced with black spray paint sometime between late Thursday night and Friday afternoon, according to a Columbus police report.
The graffiti was reported to police by an Uptown Columbus and Business Improvement District employee who said he found symbols depicting a stick man with a head shaped like a television and the words "SA Toy" spray-painted on the sides of several buildings.
The buildings tagged included: Firestone Complete Auto Care on Veterans Parkway; PTAP on 13th Street; Ray's Uptown Body Shop on 13th Street; New Horizons Disability on Second Avenue; the Ralston Towers on 12th Street; Regions Bank on 13th Street and Aaron's Sale and Lease on Broadway.
