Vandals Mark SJ Churches with Swastikas, Star of David

2 churches targeted in hate crime

Authorities are trying to determine who marked swastikas and a Star of David on two churches in San Jose this week, a police spokesman  said.

The vandalism is being treated as a hate crime, San Jose police  Officer Jermaine Thomas said.

Staff at Trinity Presbyterian Church and Indonesian Christian Church, both located at 3151 Union Ave., reported the vandalism early Monday  morning.

Thomas said the markings were found on the signs for both of the churches.

The vandalism was committed late Sunday or early Monday and investigators are still working to figure out who might have been involved in the vandalism.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call the Police Department's assault unit at 408-277-4161.
