Nassau Police arrested a man on Tuesday who’s suspected of leaving swastika graffiti around a Long Island college.

Police said Jasskirat Saini, 20, of Plainview, is responsible for drawing swastikas several different times at various locations on the campus of Nassau Community College. He was arrested Tuesday.

The incidents began Oct. 15 when three swastikas were found drawn inside a men’s bathroom. In two more incidents later that month, graffiti was found in additional men’s bathrooms.

Swastikas were again found on a stair handrail and on a wall Dec. 7. On Dec. 16, multiple swastikas were found again in a men’s bathroom.

During the investigation Tuesday, Nassau County Police said they found Saini drawing two swastikas on the exterior wall of Building H, and a KKK on the floor of F Building Cluster 225 at Nassau Community College.

Saini has been charged with aggravated harassment and will be arraigned on Wednesday in Hempstead.
