Update: Do you recognize these people? They are wanted in connection with the tagging early Wednesday morning in South Boston.


Original Post:

This is no way to start the day.

On Wednesday morning, several business and homeowners on the East Broadway/Silver Street block between G and Dorchester streets awoke to find red graffiti tagged on their properties.   

Joyce Lebedew, owner of Joyce Lebedew Real Estate, discovered that her office, at the corner of G and Broadway, had been tagged in numerous spots on her building. She contacted BPD, filed a report and tried to come up with a plan to get the red paint removed.

Then a man pulled up in front of Lebedew’s building in a Hennelly & Son Roofer and Gutters truck and offered to help…free of charge.  He heard a military banner was vandalized. By using a paint remover, the red tagging slowly disappeared.

Sometimes it’s the kindness of strangers that can turn a day around.

If you have any information about the tagging in the neighborhood, you are encouraged to reach out to Boston Police C-6 – 617) 343-4730

    Joyce Lebedews son is a Marine! Joyce has worked very hard. She is self made! Thank you to the person who cleaned up her property!

      Thats because Joe Hennelly is a stand up dude and a true south bostonian. I had the pleasure of being his neighbor for a couple months. Good guy.

    Maybe just say “thank you” to the Hennelly guy for stepping up. I believe it was the veterans sign that got his attention. Maybe you could step up and help the less fortunate.
