They say symbols such as ?KKK? and swastikas were just some of the disturbing epithets that residents woke up to Monday morning. Police say they do not believe any specific individuals were targeted in the attack. However, they insist it was a hate crime, not Halloween fun.Stamford police say they anticipate an arrest and they will prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.
