Police worked quickly over the weekend after a swastika was found spray painted on a street sign in Westchester.

Officials said the swastika was found over the weekend, and Village of Ardsley Police worked quickly to have the sign taken down and launched an investigation into who spray painted the swastika.

The Westchester County Human Rights Commission condemned the vandalism, urging the community to come together and denounce all forms of hatred.

“The Westchester County Human Rights Commission values dignity, safety and mutual respect of all people in our borders,” the organization stated. “We wholeheartedly condemn and reject this vandalism that occurred.

"We thank the Ardsley Police Department for their swift action in removing the image. We now share a responsibility to come together as a community and speak out against all forms of hatred, bigotry and intolerance in our community.”

On Facebook, Ardsley Mayor Nancy Kaboolian posted an update on the graffiti, calling it hateful and reprehensible. She noted that police are actively investigating the incident. Anyone with information has been asked to contact investigators by calling (914) 693-1700.

“We are once again called upon to condemn acts of anti-Semitism and racism in our community. I and the Village Board condemn all acts of hatred, bigotry, racism and intolerance of any kind. We have repeatedly spoken out against these kinds of hate-filled acts.”
