Stamford police seek public's help after racist graffiti found

STAMFORD - Stamford police are asking the public for help as they try to locate the person responsible for racist graffiti in the Shippan section of the city.

Officials say a swastika and a racial slur were spray painted on a stop sign and the street. Police believe it likely happened on Halloween, but wasn't reported until Tuesday.

Stamford Mayor Mike Pavia says he won't stand for hateful graffiti and intolerance in the city.

Neighbors say the graffiti has already been painted over.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Stamford Police Department at 203-977-4444.
