ANNANDALE, Va. (AP) - Police say an Annandale man has been charged after anti-Semitic graffiti was found at the Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia and two other hate-motivated incidents.

Fairfax County Police said in a statement Thursday that detectives identified a suspect using video and arrested 20-year-old Dylan Mahone Wednesday.

The vandalism, which included painting swastikas on walls, occurred early Tuesday, during the holy week of Passover. Police say Little River United Church of Christ, which posted a sign decrying anti-Muslim bigotry, was also vandalized.

Northern Virginia Community College Police were already investigating anti-Semitic flyers posted on campus.

Mahone is charged with three counts of destruction of property and wearing a mask in public to conceal one’s identity and two counts of placing a swastika on religious property with the intent to intimidate.
