A supposedly "Black" teen is arrested for spraying the N-word and swastika graffiti
Lynn Ajani Arthur, a 21-year-old lacrosse player at Goucher College in Maryland, has been accused of scrawling racist N-word and swastika graffiti targeting himself and others in a campus dorm. Police say that Lynn is "Black."
Lynn is biracial, but refers to himself as "White" to friends.
According to the UK's Daily Mail, "A black college lacrosse player has been arrested in connection with two incidents of racist graffiti found in a dorm on the Goucher College campus in Maryland.
Fynn Ajani Arthur is being charged with two counts of malicious destruction of property on Thursday night in Baltimore County.
His arrest came after graffiti aimed at black and Latino students was found on the second floor of a campus dorm, one floor above where similar graffiti had been found on November 14, Goucher College administrators said in a statement.
Police say a swastika, a racially motivated threat and three dormitory room numbers, which were occupied by black male students, were written inside the bathroom stall.
The students in those rooms were interviewed at the time of the incident. According to police, one of those students was Arthur.
On November 29, a student reported racist graffiti inside of another bathroom's stall in the same building.
This time, officials say swatikas and "KKK" were drawn, as well as the last names of four black students, including Arthur's.
Both incidents that shook the Towson campus involved backward swastikas and targeted specific individuals, according to the statement.
Thursday's graffiti depicted swastikas, the letters 'KKK' and appeared to include the last names of four black students, including Arthur. The previous graffiti reportedly said all 'n*****s' on campus would be killed.
