Swastikas and racial epithets were painted on a Saugus resident’s fence Wednesday afternoon, according to sheriff’s officials.
Lt. Mark Hershey said that the owners of the Bobwhite Circle home feel they were targeted because they are black.
No suspects were seen in the area. Because of the nature of this vandalism, it is being handled as a hate crime.
Anyone with information is encouraged to call the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s station at 661 255-1121.
