Two East Carolina University students were arrested for allegedly spray-painting a swastika on the door of a Jewish student’s apartment.

The swastika was discovered Wednesday by the Jewish woman in a private complex, The Landing, which caters to college students on several campuses in the Greenville, N.C., area.

The accused, Timothy Gill Jr., 21, and Brandon Friedhoff, 20, are acquaintances of the woman, according to WNCN, a North Carolina television station.

They are facing charges of ethnic intimidation, injury to real property and first-degree trespass. If found guilty, the men also could be banned from the apartment complex and expelled from the university.

“It needs to be known that our community will not stand for any type of discrimination and harassment,” Greenville Police Chief Hassan Aden said.
