HASTINGS, Minn. (WCCO) – Hastings Police are asking for help catching a vandal who spray painted graffiti of a possibly satanic nature on the side of a church.

Five-pointed stars inside circles and an upside down cross have now been washed off of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church’s brick walls and windows, but remnants of the graffiti remain.

Hastings Police Chief Paul Schnell says the nature of this vandalism is a concern to his department.

“While graffiti incidents are a concern in any community anywhere, anytime it’s motivated potentially by religious issues or race, gender – those are things that we ultimately step-up our level of investigation and want to know why,” Schnell said.

Anyone with information about this case should call Hastings Police. There is a reward for information leading to an arrest.
