Millersville University investigating 3 hate crime incidents

Top Stories

Multiple hate crimes investigation are underway at Millersville University.

The university said derogatory race-related graffiti against black people was found Friday in a men’s restroom in the Student Memorial Center. 

Two other incidents are anti-Semitic and considered hate crimes in the wake of the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre last weekend.

A message found Thursday in Gordinier Hall, the main dining area on the campus, was on a restroom partition in the food services area most often used by employees and some student employees.

Police said they have processed the partition for fingerprints.

University spokeswoman Janet Kacskos said police also are investigating an October 23 incident in the library.

“The one in McNairy Library was a swastika, and then the one here was “I hate Jews.” Both of those go against our values here at Millersville,” Kacskos said. “Two of our tenets are integrity and compassion, and both of those just do not match at all with our values.”

Anyone with information about the incidents is asked to call university police at 717-871-4357.
