Police are asking anyone with information about the graffiti and the suspect to call the police department at 812-376-2600.

The suspect painted the logo of Patriot Front, a white supremacist organization, on several buildings, including the Cummins Corporate Office Building, over the weekend.

The graffiti was discovered on nearly a dozen buildings Saturday morning.

Columbus officials on Monday said they believed the graffiti was done by one suspect. According to authorities, the suspect is a white male who was wearing glasses, a gray sweatshirt, blue jeans and a black backpack.

“In Columbus we welcome people of all colors, nationalities and ethnicities, who bring with them a rich culture and diversity that benefits us all,” Columbus Mayor Jim Lienhoop said in a statement. “…It does not characterize who we are or what we believe.”
