Nassau County police are investigating a series of bias incidents at Nassau Community College, all of which involved swastika graffiti being discovered on the school’s Garden City campus.
The latest incident was reported Wednesday at about 8:40 p.m. Police said a security officer found three swastikas drawn on a wall and staircase hand rail in the B Cluster Building. They were drawn in black ink and were about 8 inches long, police said.
According to police, the other three incidents took place in October. They included:
On Oct. 15, three green swastikas were found in a second floor men’s bathroom in the E Cluster Building at 8:44 a.m.
On Oct. 28, cleaning staff reported finding two swastikas and an anti-Semitic comment on a men’s bathroom wall in the Cluster D building at about 9:52 p.m.
A third incident was reported the next day, when a security guard found multiple swastikas drawn on walls and urinals in men’s bathrooms on the first and second floor of the E Building at about 12:40 p.m. Police said the swastikas were randomly placed and written in blue marker.
Nassau police plan to hold a news conference on the investigation Friday morning, police said.
Anyone with information about the incidents is asked to call Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 800-244-TIPS. All callers will remain anonymous.
