APny 11/26 1117 Spray Paint Vandalism WANTAGH, N.Y. (AP) -- A church was spray-painted with Satanic symbols and a country club had anti-Semitic slurs painted on its walls in a pair of unrelated incidents in the past week, Nassau County police said Thursday. In the most recent incident, the front door of the Wantagh Memorial Congregational Church at 1845 Wantagh Ave. was spray-painted Wednesday night with a Satanic symbol and the words "Satan's home," said police spokeswoman Officer Donna Fairweather. The writing was done between 8:45 p.m. and 10:15 p.m., and discovered by church sexton Patrick Cattani, she said. Police made no arrests in the case. The second incident occurred last Thursday at the Harbor Green Beach Club in Massapequa, but it wasn't reported until the following Wednesday, police said. According to Fairweather, police are searching for the person or persons who spray-painted anti-Semitic slurs on the side of the building. The incident was reported by the club director, Nick Grant.
