WOODBURY -

Nassau police say graffiti referencing the MS-13 street gang was scrawled onto multiple homes overnight.

It happened along Seward Drive in Woodbury sometime between 9 p.m. Friday and 6 a.m. Saturday, detectives say. MS-13 references and various profanities were scrawled onto homes using silver spray paint.

It comes after MS-13 references, swastikas and other hateful messages were spray painted onto Syosset High School back on Aug. 27.

The street gang has been blamed for multiple killings across Long Island in the past year and a half.

Anyone with information is urged to call Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 800-244-TIPS.
