Holdson Marcelin, 38, was arrested Saturday in Palmetto Bay, Florida on charges of burglary, criminal disaster and property damage.
The Florida homeless man who, according to police, has smeared his blood on the walls in a local municipal building and caused $ 500,000 in property damage, appears to be the same person who arrested the Chicago Police almost two years ago for a similar incident at a Trump tower.
Investigators in Palmetto Bay, Florida traced and arrested Holdson Marcelin (38) on Saturday and asked him to inflict burglary, criminal calamity and property damage.
The local police who said they had had previous run-ins with Marcelin explained that they had recognized him when they saw him three days earlier in the town hall surveillance room.
The cameras would have taken Macelin with a trash can to smash the glass at the entrance of the building on April 23 at 11 p.m. before they tumbled through the factory.

Marcelin was reportedly shot at the camera to tilt office equipment and filing cabinets and destroy other objects in the front lobby, including a large television. Police say he incised himself during the incident and started to spread his blood on the walls
It was reported that Marcelin turned around desks and filing cabinets while destroying other items in the lobby on the side, including a large screen television.
Police say the 38-year-old cut his hand during the incident before smearing his own blood on the walls and an American flag that they claim pulled out when he finally fled the scene, according to ABC Action News.
Chicago police said Marcelin broke glass, threw tables and chairs, and poured wine on the floors in a restaurant in the Trump Tower, causing more than $ 10,000 in damage.
Palmetto Bay Mayor Karyn Cunningham was stunned when they saw the damage the next day.
& # 39; It almost seemed like anger, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; If something was made, it would probably take a few days for them to figure it out, but at a glance, if you look around, based on what you said, it looks more like someone just set up taking things apart instead of looking for them – because there is enough electronics and all kinds of things that could be stolen, but instead they were simply destroyed. & # 39;
This is not the first time Marcelin has been booked for unbridled and apparently random destruction of property.
He was arrested for breaking glass, throwing tables and chairs, and pouring wine on the floors in a restaurant in the Trump Tower in Chicago, causing damage to more than $ 10,000 on October 3, 2017, Patch said. the Chicago Tribune.
Marcelin remains imprisoned without a band.
A lawyer is not mentioned in the prison records.
