    Police are investigating hateful graffiti that was discovered at Stanford University last week.

    A security officer around 8:30 p.m. Saturday spotted a Swastika on a building pillar of the Graduate School of Business. It had been drawn in a blue grease pencil, according to Stanford News.

    The incident was criticized by President Marc Tessier-Lavigne.

    “It is profoundly troubling to learn that vandals have defaced our campus with this symbol of hate,” he said. “The university has zero tolerance for such appalling acts, which go counter to our fundamental values.”

    Police believe it was drawn sometime between 6 p.m. Oct. 18 and the time it was found, Stanford News reported.

    This is the second time in as many months that a Swastika has been discovered on campus.

    Suspects have not been identified.
