Police To Investigate Swastikas On Church As Hate-Crime

(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.
