Close to ten homes vandalized with swastikas, upside down crosses and the number 666, associated with the devil.

Close to ten homes vandalized with swastikas, upside down crosses and the number 666, associated with the devil.

It happened ast Sunday night and then again Tuesday night.

"There's no place in our community for these kind of hatred looking, vile graffiti," says San Joaquin County Sheriffs Office spokesman Dave Konecny.

He says he has personally never seen anything like it in Woodbridge before.

"The belief is even though we treat it as a hate crime it doesn't look like any of these were specifically targeted," says Konecny.

The sheriff's office adds eggs were also tossed at one home's gate. 

The homes were on Indiana, Mokelumne, Lilac and Augusta streets.

No one has been arrested.

The sheriff's office has been unable to find any home surveillance video.

The majority of the graffiti has been painted over.

If you have any information, contact the San Joaquin County Sheriffs Office at 209-468-4400.

In photos posted on the San Joaquin County Sheriffs Office facebook page, about ten homes were vandalized with swastikas, upside down crosses and the number 666, associated with the devil.

It happened last Sunday night and then again Tuesday night.

"There's no place in our community for these kind of hatred looking, vile graffiti," says San Joaquin County Sheriffs spokesman Dave Konecny.

Konecny says he has personally never seen anything like it in Woodbridge before.

"The belief is even though we treat it as a hate crime it doesn't look like any of these were specifically targeted," Konecny says.

At least 4 different streets suffered graffiti attacks.

The homes were on Indiana, Mokelumne, Lilac and Augusta streets.

And not just homes, but vehicles too, including an RV.

Joshua Jackson has surveillance camera’s lining the home where he lives.

But none were able to capture an image of the graffiti-vandals in action who struck at a home across from him.

“I was just kind of shocked because it’s a quiet neighborhood and the fact that you don’t normally see things like that around here. You might see spray paint every once and awhile, but nothing racist or anti-semitic or anything like that," says Jackson.

The majority of the graffiti, painted over and gone.

But the sheriffs office vows it won’t let go of this case until the person or persons who did it face justice.

No suspects have been arrested

The sheriff's office has been unable to find any home surveillance video.

The San Joaquin County Sheriffs is asking for the public’s help.

Call them at 209-468-4400.
