Los Angeles police are investigating a hate crime at a West Hills synagogue where suspects spray-painted two swastikas and "Go Home" on the congregation's property, officials said Monday.

The graffiti, which also included the numbers "666" within the swastikas, was discovered about 6:30 a.m. Monday spray painted on the corner of temporary offices at the Temple Judea satellite campus in the 6600 block of Valley Circle Boulevard, according to LAPD officials.

There was no immediate description of a suspect or suspects, police said. The incident is being investigated at a hate crime.

"Obviously, it's upsetting, but we don't feel like we are in any danger," said Ellen Franklin, executive director of Temple Judea, which has its main campus in Tarzana. "We are thankful for the immediate response by the LAPD and their investigation." L.A. NOW
