Police from the 112th Precinct in Forest Hills are looking for a disheveled vandal who allegedly had the audacity to tag the stationhouse on Austin Street with graffiti last week.

The suspect allegedly approached the front wall of the 112th Precinct at around 2:40 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 11 and sprayed “Benz” on the wall before running off in an unknown direction, police said.

The NYPD released a surveillance image of the suspect on Saturday that shows him walking on Austin Street near 68th Avenue. He is described as a Hispanic with a thin build and long dark hair with a mustache. He was last seen wearing all-black clothing and black shoes.
