Ori Feibush Offers $25,000 Reward for Info on South Philly Vandals
Point Breeze developer Ori Feibushis offering $25,000 to anyone who can identify seven people he says vandalized his OCF Realty office in Graduate Hospital on November 25th.
Feibush, who lost a City Council race to Kenyatta Johnson in 2015 and later sued Johnson for political retaliation, said in a Facebook post Monday that police are searching for the suspects.
PPD spokesman Jeff Chrusch confirmed that South Detectives are investigating. Police were called to the scene after Feibush discovered 19 windows and the pavement surrounding his OCF Reality office at 1936 Washington Avenue had been vandalized with spray paint and paintballs. The words “Gentry Skum” were written in orange paint on one window, police said.
From Feibush’s post:
“The individuals turned onto the 1900 block of Alter Street after vandalizing my office,” Feibush wrote. “They then ran through an alley just behind 20th Street which exits onto Ellsworth. “We are actively pulling footage from other businesses on that block as well as our many cameras in the neighborhood but [I] ask you all to look at your own footage around that time to see if your cameras show anything in the area.
“Please share this video and message. There is no place for this kind of behavior in our City.”
