Montgomery County Police are investigating vandalism in one Cloverly neighborhood that may be a hate crime. A second incident of vandalism occurred two days later at Herbert Hoover Middle School.

Police are already investigating vandalism in the Spencerville neighborhood that happened earlier this week. Now, they're looking for the culprit or culprits who scrawled hate language and phallic images on Herbert Hoover Middle School in Potomac, according to the Associated Press.

They're offering a reward for anyone who provides information that leads to an arrest.

The latest attack occurred sometime Wednesday evening or overnight. On Tuesday night, the vandals slashed tires and spray painted hateful language and slogans across cars, street signs, and a park in the Spencerville area.

Anyone who may have information on the crimes should contact the Montgomery county police.
