Hate graffiti and anti-semitic iconography was found painted on sidewalks and walls in Northridge this weekend, according to ABC Local.

Authorities believe it was likely done by teenagers affiliated with a white supremacist group, but "it was unknown who sprayed the hate messages," said LAPD.

The graffiti will be sandblasted or painted over as soon as possible, say officials. The wall, they said, "does not hold any special religious or social significance."
