The graffiti was found on sidewalks, the road, constructions signs and even on walls of private homes.

San Diego police are investigating the vandalism, which may be deemed a hate crime, reported ABC affiliate KGTV.

“We were disgusted by what we saw,” Joe Dicks, who noticed the spray-painting on his way to work, told KGTV.

“Look at what the symbol represents,” he said. “Hatred, intolerance, violence. I mean, make no mistake—this is a threat.”
