Police were called to a residential hall at the Tufts University campus near Somerville, MA. over the weekend after complaints that swastikas had been painted on its walls.

The graffiti was “very similar” to the anti-Semitic graffiti found on campus and in nearby Somerville in late November, according to Tufts Police, the Somerville Patch reported.

Somerville Mayor Joseph Curtatone released the following statement about the incident:

“There is no place in Somerville, a city that prides itself on diversity and inclusion, for cowardly acts of hatred such as this. I thank the Tufts University administration and their police for quickly responding to this despicable act. Somerville Police and our Human Rights Commission will provide any resources necessary for the investigation.”
