Seal Beach police are investigating racist graffiti left in a massage parlor in Seal Beach over the weekend.

When employees at Massage Envy in the 12300 block of Seal Beach Blvd. opened the store Sunday morning, they found a swastika, "happy ending" and "White PPiDS" spray painted in the store. "At this point we have no idea what that means," Sgt. Phil Gonshak told City News Service, referring to "White PPiDS."

According to ABC 7 an employee Halloween party at the store ended at 10 p.m. Saturday night. The store opened at 9 a.m. on Sunday. Nothing was stolen, and the damages were estimated at $1,500.

Anyone with more information was asked to call police at (562) 799-4100, Ext. 1109.
