A New Cassel man faces charges after Nassau County Police said he was caught on camera spray painting graffiti on a building.

Third Precinct officers responded to 163 Post Avenue in Westbury and were told that a man was seen spray painting the side of a building across the street, detectives said.

Responding officers said they found David Reyes, 18, of New Cassel, walking down the street carrying with paint on his hands and a can of spray paint in his jacket pocket. Reyes reportedly struggled with police as they tried to handcuff him.  The incident happened at 10:57 p.m. Friday, police reported.

The building manager also came to the scene and reviewed security footage that showed Reyes spray painting doors, cops said.

Reyes was charged with third-degree criminal mischief, making graffiti, resisting arrest, and possession of a graffiti instrument. He was arraigned Saturday at First District Court in Hempstead.
