A man has been arrested for spray-painting swastikas on a Muslim woman’s car in Revere Massachusett, last month.

Jason Pagliuca, 38, of Revere, was arrested on June 30 and charged with defacement of property and property damage for the purpose of intimidation, Revere police announced.

In addition to the swastikas, the words ‘white power’ were spray painted on the street near the car on June 11, police said.

Police acting on tips from the public executed a search warrant at the suspect’s home and recovered evidence directly related to the case, they said. They did not specify the nature of the evidence.

“Sadly, this crime is an example of the racism many of our residents experience on an ongoing basis,” Mayor Brian Arrigo said in a statement. “We will not allow hatred in our city, and we must continue to call it out and address it.”

The Massachusetts chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations offered a $1,000 reward for information that led to an arrest and conviction
