DARIEN — Racially charged slurs and symbols were found drawn in chalk on the tennis courts at Weed Beach.
Officers responded to reported of the vandalism on May 27 around 10:55 a.m. On one tennis court at the beach complex were several pieces of graffiti, including a swastika and a racial slur. A third word was written but was illegible. The swastika was 18 inches by 18 inches and the slur was one foot by three feet.
The officers were able to immediately remove the chalk markings and no permanent damage was done to the court. Officers could not find any witnesses or further evidence. Police, who said there are no suspects at this time, refused to release any more details about the incident.
