Sacramento police are investigating an instance of anti-Mormon vandalism found in a Natomas neighborhood Sunday night, authorities said today.
A man walked out of his home Sunday evening to find his Mini Cooper car vandalized with black permanent marker, said police Officer Konrad Von Schoech. He said the message read, "Damn Mormons."
Von Schoech declined to say whether the victim was Mormon, but said police are treating the incident as a hate crime because the message was derogatory to a religious group. They have not identified any suspects.
