YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

A 25-year-old Canfield man has been indicted for allegedly scrawling anti-Semitic and offensive graffiti at various locations at Mill Creek Park.

The Mahoning County Grand Jury on Thursday handed up a two count indictment against Scott Spencer, who is charged with ethnic intimidation and criminal mischief.

Both charges are misdemeanors under Ohio law.

Park police say that for a one week period in September, Spencer was responsible for placing graffiti in several locations, including the East Cohasset, Lanterman's Mill, and Boat Dock areas.

The graffiti, written in chalk, included messages like, "Hitler was right", "Jews highjacked (sp) America", and “Jews are behind the race mixing agenda."

All of the graffiti was washed off by park personnel.

Spencer will be arraigned on the charges later this month.
