    Police arrested a man Wednesday suspected of spray-painting swastikas on a student campus residence and a fraternity house at Stanford University this past spring, university officials said.

    Police arrested 19-year-old Lucas Ninow in Mountain View on a warrant for one county of felony vandalism, one count of misdemeanor vandalism and one count of a misdemeanor hate crime, university officials said.

    Ninow is not a Stanford student, according to Stanford.

    Police booked him into the Santa Clara County main jail at 1:20 p.m. Wednesday and he was to be arraigned Thursday, according to the university.

    University officials said someone discovered the spray-painted swastikas April 26  on the Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity and on the La Casa Italiana student residence.

    A statement issued by Stanford University president John Hennessy shortly after the incident said, "This level of incivility has no place at Stanford. I ask everyone in the university community to stand together against intolerance and hate, and to affirm our commitment to a campus community where discourse is civil, where we value differences, and where every individual is respected."
