SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Sacramento police say they will investigate two swastikas that were spray-painted on a Catholic church as part of a hate-crime.
The Sacramento Bee reports (http://bit.ly/2rJbFKf ) church officials found the symbols painted on an outer wall of the St. Francis of Assisi Parish on Saturday. They believe the vandalism occurred between Thursday and Friday.
A Sacramento police spokesman said Sunday that the weight of the swastika symbol is enough to raise the charge to a potential hate crime.
Police are reviewing surveillance footage taken from outside the church.
