French artists allegedly vandalized LA buildings

LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles police are looking for two French citizens suspected of vandalizing a downtown office building near where a groundbreaking graffiti art exhibit will open on Sunday.

Officer Jack Richter tells the Los Angeles Times that city authorities detained the two men on a fire escape Friday morning. They were released at the scene but police still want to talk to them. Police believe the men are in town for the Museum of Contemporary Art's "Art in the Streets" exhibit.

Police and business owners say there's been a jump in vandalism and graffiti leading up to Sunday's opening.

Business owner Anthony Sperl says his tenant saw two men on a roof tagging a building.

Sperl plans to be out every night for the next week to watch for graffiti vandals.
