RPD Arrest 2 in Forest Hill, Bryan Park Graffiti Cases

After an in-depth investigation by Richmond Police, Henrico Police and the FBI, two men have been arrested and charged with vandalism in connection with the spraying of anti-Semitic and racist graffiti in Forest Hill Park, Bryan Park and the Bellevue area last year.

Jonathan Edward Feldman, of Richmond, is charged with felony destruction of property. Andrew Bryant Souser, 22, of the 1700 block of Elmsmere Avenue, is charged with two felony counts of destruction of property and 17 misdemeanor counts of destruction of property.

“Investigators worked hard on this case following up on leads that led us to these men,” Special Events Division Commander Michael Shamus said. “If it weren’t for the partnerships between Richmond, Henrico and the FBI as well as community tips and a thorough follow-up, the case would not have had such a positive outcome.”

Similar charges are also pending against both men in Henrico County.
