WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- Several swastikas were recently found painted on a door of one of the buildings of the Grace Church campus in Hastings-On-Hudson, according to Police Chief Anthony M. Visalli.

The village police department is investigating the incident that took place sometime between Friday, June 2 and Saturday, June 3, at the church located at 457 Broadway, Visalli said.

The Village Board is currently offering a $1,000 reward for any information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for committing this crime.

"We are distressed and disappointed to report that there was another incident of swastikas graffiti in the Village this past weekend," said Mayor Peter Swiderski. "This form of hate speech is abhorrent and does not represent the values of this village."

Anyone who has any information regarding this crime please call 914-478-3400 ext. 623.
