A grainy, 33-second black and white clip released by LAPD shows a person dressed in a light-colored long sleeve shirt and light-colored pants appearing to scrawl something onto a wall.

Authorities said at least eight locations were vandalized by the time the person fled the scene in a light-colored four-door sedan.

Police described the vandal as a male or female who stands between 6 feet to 6 feet 2 inches tall and was wearing a sheer stocking to hide his or her face at the time of the crime.

No other details have been released.
