Police at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have issued two arrest warrants after a weekend vandalism incident in which anti-Semitic symbols and a racial slur were scrawled inside a campus building.

According to UNC officials, the crime occurred when an intruder broke into the Campus Y sometime between Saturday and Sunday.

Police have identified a suspect.

The Campus Y is described on UNC’s website as “a collaborative space that unites students, staff, faculty, and community partners in the pursuit of social justice.”

A UNC statement said, “Hateful vandalism is not acceptable anywhere on our campus, but this breach of an established organization that promotes equality and justice is particularly egregious.”
