Derogatory graffiti targeting the Hindu culture was found spray painted on the back of a 23100 block Glenorchy Court home in Ashburn Jan. 10 at about 1 p.m.

The residents found the vandalism Saturday, though it's unclear when the graffiti was placed on the building, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office.

Ashburn's Brambleton community was hit with a rash of anti-Hindu graffiti last year. LCSO had been investigating the vandalism since July.

In these earlier incidents, disparaging and offensive language targeting the Hindu community were written on community signs in black sharpie.

Northstar Boulevard, Olympia Drive and Evergreen Mills Road in Ashburn were the sites of three incidents in September, 2014. In October, six more areas in Brambleton were targeted.

The Brambleton Community Association offered a $1000 reward for information leading to the capture of the vandal in the incidents last year. After contributions from LCSO, the county and other entities, the reward grew to more than $21K.

Anyone with any information on anti-Hindu graffiti vandals is asked to contact Deputy First Class R. Ortutay at 571-246-4156 or via e-mail at Callers wishing to remain anonymous are asked to call Loudoun Crime Solvers at 703-777-1919.
