SAN DIEGO (KGTV) – A San Diego man is facing charges related to the discovery of swastikas and other antisemitic phrases and symbols scrawled on a San Diego State University building.

SDSU Police officials said Tri Boomer Sov, a 50-year-old non-student, was identified as the suspect allegedly responsible for the graffiti on a building in the 5100 block of College Avenue.

The graffiti was reported on March 9, according to SDSU Police.
