Racist, homophobic graffiti found in bathroom stall at Needham High School

NEEDHAM, Mass. — Needham Police are investigating after racist graffiti was found in the bathroom at the high school.

Parents and students say they're disgusted by this and upset to hear it happened, but it's not the first time messages like this have been found.

"I'm heartbroken by it. This is not the town that we live in and it's a heartbreaking thing," said student Alex Cusick.

Needham Police says that graffiti was carved into a bathroom stall at Needham High School. Police say the graffiti consisted of racist, anti-semitic, and homophobic statements.

Last December, students staged a walkout after hateful messages were found in bathrooms on three separate occasions. Now that it's happened again, students are urging whoever is responsible to come forward.

"You need to grow up if you've done it."

The police department says they are actively working with the school district to track down whoever is responsible.
