NBC Connecticut

New Haven police are looking for the person behind some disturbing vandalism after finding hate symbols on buildings that house an Indian restaurant and an immigration office, as well as a police station and elderly housing on Eastern Street. 

Police responded to 405 Foxon Boulevard, which includes an Indian restaurant, an immigration and tax office, just before 9 a.m. Monday after receiving a report of vandalism. 

All the windows on the first floor and the glass doors were shattered, police said. The vandal also left swastikas and anti-police markings on a painted wooden fence and there was an obscene illustration depicting Gov. Dannel Malloy and former Tulsa, Oklahoma police officer, Betty Shelby, according to police. 

Police said one witness reported hearing the vandal sometime between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m., but only knew that vandal wore dark clothing. 

Detectives are reviewing surveillance video and will test evidence recovered from the scene.
