Vandals attacked the statue of West Covina High School's bulldog mascot over the weekend, spraying it  with green paint and a swastika.

West Covina Police Sgt. Rudy Lopez said the incident took place between Friday evening and Sunday in the center quad of the campus at 1609 E. Cameron Avenue.

"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 some 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.
