Police are investigating after a vandal defaced a Sikh gurdwara in Calgary.

The graffiti, which includes swastikas and profanity, was discovered Thursday morning at the Sikh Society of Calgary on 81st Street S.W.

Police, who don't have a clear description of the culprit due to poor surveillance video, say depending on the motive, charges could potentially be property damage, mischief or inciting hatred.
