A suspicious rope was found hanging from a tree at a local park.

Several people sent photos to News 12 upset over what they are calling a noose.

Police officers say they found something that looked like a string from sweatpants tied around the tree when they arrived at the Louis Engle Park

News 12 is told the rope has been removed, and police say they are investigating to see if this was a hate crime.

Police tell News 12 the rope in the picture is the only one they found in the area and will continue to investigate.
