HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Officials at the University of Alabama in Huntsville is trying to find out who drew swastikas outside Morton Hall last week.

A UAH police report states two swastikas were found stenciled at two locations on the building. Offensive graffiti was also found in a basement men's restroom.

UAH President Robert Altenkirch released the following statement:

The university will always be the place where the free and open exchange and expression of ideas are welcomed. However, recently an individual or individuals, through stealth and acts of cowardice, defaced a university academic building and property with inflammatory graffiti and symbols. These acts are the very opposite of the manner in which open-minded and educated women and men express points of view and participate in constructive dialogue.
