An employee of New Beginnings Church on Tokeneke Road reported what he believed were satanic symbols vandalized on the church on Oct. 3.

Police said the vandal wrote "IVII" on the front of the door below the New Beginnings logo and on the concrete wall along the stairs between 7:30 and 7:50 p.m.

The complainant was concerned because IVII contains the numeral six rendered three different ways in Roman numerals, and said 666 is the number of the devil.

Police said they have no reason the believe the church was targeted.
