Suspect arrested and identified after graffiti was found in Alamo Plaza Friday morning

Red spray paint was found to have been used to leave words on the cenotaph in Alamo Plaza, among them "profit over people" with a downward-facing arrow.

SAN ANTONIO — Pictures from early Friday morning show the Alamo cenotaph was vandalized with spray paint. 

The red graffiti was found by police on the historic marble statue in Alamo Plaza around 1:15 a.m. The words read "white supremacy," "profit over people" and "the ALAMO"—each lined prefaced with a downward-facing arrow. 

Later on Friday morning, San Antonio Police Chief William McManus told KENS 5 that a person suspected in another apparent act of vandalism on Travis Street just a few blocks away, 25-year-old Noah Benjamin Escamilla, is also suspected in this incident. Escamilla, however, has yet to be formally charged in the Alamo Plaza vandalism.
