(State College) -- Penn State, State College police and the Anti-Defamation League are trying to find whoever sprayed anti-Semitic graffiti on vehicles parked behind a Jewish fraternity and another frat house, along with a garage and garbage container.

The graffiti included swastikas and other anti-Semitic slogans, along with sexual pictures and phrases.

The university is supporting the Jewish fraternity, Beta Sigma Beta, and pledging to investigate.

Some of the cars targeted were parked behind the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity.

The university says State College police have jurisdiction over the neighborhood in question, and have offered a one-thousand dollar reward for information on the vandalism.

Police say the graffiti was spray-painted sometime late Thursday or early Friday.
