Vermont state police are trying to identify a man accused of racist and antisemitic vandalism in Franklin County; it happened on Sept. 2 just after 9:30 a.m.
Police say the suspect is accused of vandalizing the paved section of the recreation path in Swanton closest to the Robin Hood Drive intersection. They say the man allegedly scraped and carved racist, antisemitic symbols and hate speech into a mural. The mural was covering up previous vandalism.
