Police In Wilmington, Delaware Investigating Multiple Locations Vandalized With Swastikas

WILMINGTON, Del. (CBS) -- Eyewitness News has confirmed that police in Wilmington, Delaware are investigating the vandalism of multiple locations that were spray-painted with swastikas. Police believe the vandalism took place on Friday night.

The Columbus Inn, a billboard on Union Street, and Brandywine Counseling and Community Services are the places that were vandalized, according to police.

Wilmington's Criminal Investigations Division is investigating the incident. 

Some of the swastikas were backwards. When the swastika's arms are backward, it's often the sign of a young person attempting to do "shock" graffiti, rather than a white supremacist, according to the Anti-Defamation League.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Wilmington Police at 302-654-5151.
