In a move that has outraged much of the street art community, the group of mostly men charged into the CBD laneway and used spray guns to splash paint across the walls.
There to make an impact, the mob of at least 10 appeared to bring along at least two cameramen, including a drone, to document their attack.
As well as destroy artwork that attracts thousands of tourists, the vandals also splashed paint all over the laneway’s iconic cobblestones.
Hosier Lane this morning.
Melbourne council is expected to clean the cobblestones today.
