Swastika painted at West Covina High School; suspects sought

Police continued Tuesday to look for the people who sprayed a statue of the West Covina High School mascot with green paint and a swastika.

Vandals attacked the bulldog mascot between Friday evening and Sunday in the center quad of the campus, said West Covina police Sgt. Rudy Lopez.

"What is so troubling here is the swastika. We don't take such things lightly," he said.

Lopez said the investigation is ongoing and that authorities are seeking to interview people who posted the incident on Twitter. No suspects have been arrested.

Investigators are asking anyone with information to contact the West Covina Police Department at (626) 939-8557.
