Police arrested two North Philadelphia residents on charges connected to several graffiti tags seen throughout the Northwest, according to a report from the Philadelphia Police Department.

According to police, the two men, a 20-year-old and a 19-year-old were arrested on charges of felony trespassing, criminal mischief and vandalism after the pair allegedly spray painted their tags on SEPTA property.

Police believe the two men could be connected to the tags "Fact" and "Scut," which have been discovered by residents in Mt. Airy over the past several weeks.
