Police investigate swastika graffiti at Massachusetts school

No suspects have been identified

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Police are investigating after a Massachusetts high school reported that swastikas and other offensive graffiti were found in school bathrooms.

Officials at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School told police that hateful graffiti had been found in boys’ and girls’ bathrooms five times over the past week, including twice Thursday.

Principal Damon Smith condemned the graffiti in a letter to parents, saying the swastika represents racism and anti-Semitism that violate the school’s core values.

Smith said whoever is responsible for the graffiti will face “appropriate action.” No suspects have been identified.

Cambridge Rindge and Latin is a public high school of about 1,800 students located near Boston.

Another school in Harvard, Massachusetts, reported Nov. 25 that a rock in front of the building had been vandalized with swastikas and offensive graffiti.
