UPDATED: Swastikas Discovered at North Point Village Center

Swastikas were discovered in North Point Village Center today (Wednesday).

According to the Fairfax County Police Department, several swastikas were spray painted on the sidewalk and along the concrete of the shopping center.

The word “Lucifer” was also found on the wall of a building.  FCPD says the case — which was classified as a hate or bias incident — remains an active investigation

Hunter Mill District Supervisor Walter Alcorn issued the following statement about the incident:

Acts of hate will not be tolerated. And vandalism and hate crimes are both criminal acts.  Throughout this pandemic we have witnessed tremendous community spirit and goodness and I am confident that will continue. The Police Department is investigating and I encourage anyone with information related to this incident to call the Police non-emergency number at 703-691-2131.

A group of neighbors bought lunch for workers who cleaned the spray paint. A thank you sign was left on the building.
