Yonkers family finds swastikas spray-painted on their car

Swastikas were found sprayed on a car in the Colonial Section of Yonkers.

The Carannante family awoke Thursday only to find swastikas spray-painted on their family car. The father and daughter say there were three swastikas on the car. They also say even though they are Italian they were offended. Another woman in the area says she found a white stripe painted on her car. The incident happened just a few blocks away from a synagogue.

Residents say it's not the first time that cars in the area have been vandalized. They say there are many quality of life issues that need to be resolved.

Meanwhile, police say they are investigating the incident as a bias crime.
