A man covered in grey paint caught on security cameras leaving a building in Toronto’s financial district is now wanted by police on break-and-enter and mischief charges.

According to the Toronto Star, the suit-clad man walked into a King Street building around 11 p.m. on Dec. 9. and left a second floor office covered in grey paint.

Toronto police allege the man broke into the office of an unidentified building at the intersection of King and York streets, and smashed windows and bottles inside. At some point, Const. Caroline de Kloet of the Toronto Police Service said it appears he found, or took, a can of paint from somewhere else inside the tower — the surveillance footage shows he didn’t enter the building with it — and poured it all over the inside of the office.

Altogether, the owners are dealing with at least $5,000 worth of damage.

The man is described as about 5 ft 10 inches tall, between the ages of 19 and 25. He has a medium build and short, red hair.
