WEST COVINA, Calif. (AP) - Authorities are investigating vandalism at a Los Angeles County church as a hate crime.

Surveillance video shows a masked man dressed in dark clothing spray-painting graffiti on the grounds of St. Christopher Catholic Church in West Covina.

Police Corporal Rudy Lopez says several statues, stained glass windows and sidewalks were defaced early Saturday.

Among the graffiti were references to various Bible verses and the phrase “bow down to Jehovah.”

Lopez says detectives are seeking witnesses and reviewing the security footage in the hopes of identifying a suspect.
