Justin Pomerleau, who owns Vivant Vintage across the street, was able to capture the incident on his surveillance camera.

“He just came up with a black can of spray paint, just started filling in the word black,” Pomerleau told WBZ. “It took them a while because people were walking by, they kept stopping they gave us great shots of their face by turning towards the cameras.”

On Sunday, Boston Police said they have identified the man believed to be the suspect on the video. Police did not release the man’s identity. He was walking with a woman at the time of the incident.
