ANNANDALE, Va. (AP) - Police are investigating anti-Semitic vandalism and graffiti that was spray-painted on the Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia.

The vandalism, which included painting swastikas and other Nazi symbols on the building walls, occurred Tuesday before sunrise.

Fairfax County Police said a nearby church, the Little River United Church of Christ in Annandale, was also vandalized with graffiti. The church had posted a sign decrying anti-Muslim bigotry.

Jeff Dannick, executive director of the community center, said the vandalism is especially disheartening over the Passover holiday.

Workers began removing the graffiti Tuesday afternoon.
