Four people were arrested Wednesday on suspicion of vandalism after police said they were caught spray painting at the University of California at Berkeley campus. 

UC Berkeley police arrested Amado Becerra, 19, Arash Ehya, 19, Andrew Feldman, 18, and Santosh Malarkannan, 19. 

Only Malarkannan is a student at UC Berkeley, according to university police. 

Campus police responded at 2:10 a.m. to the university's Recreational Sports Facility after receiving a report of vandalism and detained the suspects after police found them with red spray paint. 

Police said the men spray painted the sports facility, Sather Gate, Cesar Chavez Center and other locations on and off campus. 

Police estimated the on-campus damage to be between $3,000 and $5,000.
