DAVIS, Calif. (AP) - The Anti-Defamation League has offered a $2,500 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person who spray-painted swastikas on a University of California, Davis off-campus Jewish fraternity house.

Davis police are investigating the weekend vandalism as a hate crime.

The Sacramento Bee reports reward was announced Monday.

Police spokesman Tom Waltz says no suspects have been identified, and no arrests have been made.

The two large swastikas spray-painted onto the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity house happened between 3 and 9 a.m. Saturday.

In a statement, UC Davis Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi called the behavior "repugnant and a gross violation of the values our university holds dear."
