A swastika was found scrawled on the garage of a Sea Cliff woman's home, Nassau police said today.

The symbol was drawn in black permanent marker on a panel of the garage door sometime between Saturday evening and Sunday morning, police said. It measures 5 inches by 5 inches, police said.

The woman, 63, who is Jewish and lives on Glen Avenue, was not identified by police.

Officer James Imperiale, a police spokesman, said it is too soon to tell whether the incident, which was categorized as aggravated harassment and is being investigated by Sixth Squad detectives, is related to a rash of racist graffiti discovered nearby in recent weeks.

Two weeks ago, swastikas and the words "White Knight" were found in Sea Cliff on St. Boniface School and homes on Main Avenue, Littleworth Lane and Arlington Place, according to police.

Earlier this weekend, the vehicle of a man parked for Sabbath services at a Great Neck synagogue was scratched with swastikas, police said.

"It's still an ongoing investigation. It's too early to tell" whether the same person or people drew the swastikas, Imperiale said.

The most recent aggravated harassment incident has not yet been referred to the Nassau County Bias Crime Unit, Imperiale said.

Imperiale said police had no suspect in custody as of Sunday afternoon, but that anyone with information could contact Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 800-244-8477.
