SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Churchgoers were greeted with offensive symbols Sunday morning after vandals spray-painted Swastikas onto several buildings.

The vandalism happened at St. Francis of Assisi Parish.

Investigators are treating it as a hate crime, even though the five Nazi symbols painted on St. Francis Church and high school were backwards.

People outside Sunday services were stunned.

“It was a horror, this is such a special place to think that they would do that, schools out, it’s very upsetting,” said a churchgoer.

The Swastikas have since been painted over.

Investigators are hoping surveillance video will lead to who did it and why.
