Swastikas Drawn on Sign at New Albany Retirement Home

The sign at Azalea Hills is being repainted after two swastikas and male genitalia were found drawn on it.

FLOYD COUNTY, Ind. -- Graffiti was left on the sign of a retirement community near New Albany on Monday.

The sign at Azalea Hills had two red swastikas drawn on one side of the sign and male genitalia on the other.

Cassie McCoun, an administrator at Azalea Hills, told the News and Tribune she doesn't think the vandalism was targeting a specific group, but was probably done by "a bunch of kids."

Floyd County Sheriff Frank Loop said he also suspects that kids in the neighborhood are responsible for the vandalism.

The Indianapolis Jewish Community Relations Council shared a photo of the sign before it was covered by a tarp. 

Crews plan to finish repainting the sign today.
