CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- With just two days until the start of Spoleto Festival USA, two suspects are wanted for spray painting businesses downtown.

The first suspect, Ryan "Rx One" Davis, is wanted for tagging at least three businesses on the peninsula.

Another suspect, who remains unidentified, is wanted for spray painting a fence outside the Roper Childrens Day Care Center on Radcliffe Street.

Police have released a photo of the suspect in hopes the public can help identify him.

The suspect is described as a young white male with a slender build. He was seen getting out of a four-door sedan before painting the fence.

Damages are estimated at $100.
