BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) - Deputies are investigating after someone painted a swastika on the side of a black Ford Mustang parked in a Boca Raton neighborhood.

Investigators say the incident happened either late Saturday night or early Sunday morning.

The Anti-Defamation League strongly condemned what it called an "act of vandalism" in the Village Del Mar, which is a largely Jewish neighborhood in Palm Beach County.

Deputies say the swastika was painted on the driver's side door.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers.
