STANFORD, Calif. (AP) - A homeless man, and not a student, has been arrested on suspicion of spraying swastikas around the Stanford University campus.

The San Francisco Chronicle (https://bit.ly/1HmxkYG ) reports Saturday that campus police arrested a 19-year-old man Wednesday on suspicion of vandalism and committing a misdemeanor hate crime.

Authorities said they do not know the motivation. The man is in custody on $40,000 bail.

Jewish campus groups quickly organized anti-Semitism events after the April 26 incident, where students found the Nazi symbol at a fraternity house and at a student residence.

A spokeswoman for the university said the administration was happy to know that the person was not someone part of the university community.
