VIDEO: Police investigate swastikas on Sacramento Catholic church as hate-crime

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 ( ) 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.
