DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Shortly after the sun rose on the second day of Passover Saturday, residents in the 9500 block of Manchester Dr. found a stark-pink swastika spray painted in the middle of the street.

Dallas Police spokesman Lt. Scott Walton said officers have labeled the offense criminal mischief and are investigating whether it should be reclassified as a hate crime.

Walton said a resident told police he saw middle school-aged teenagers running from the area shortly before the swastika was seen.

“However, it is unknown if they were involved in the incident,” he said.

Walton said the Northwest Division has added extra patrol throughout the area.
