PURCHASE, N.Y. -- Police are investigating how swastikas got drawn on a message board in a dormitory at SUNY Purchase, according to multiple reports.
Three swastikas were reportedly found on the board in the building's fourth floor, said News 12 Westchester.

The vandalism was uncovered Sunday, Betsy Aldredge, a spokeswoman for the college, told lohud.
The investigation is continuing and SUNY Purchase is in contact with "appropriate agencies as is protocol," Aldredge said to the newspaper.
