Hate crime charges could be filed after someone spray painted graffiti and damaged a 2004 BMW parked on Saranac Avenue in North Buffalo overnight Wednesday, police said.

The victim reported to police that someone broke the windshield of his vehicle, poured sugar in his gas tank and spray painted the vehicle with messages including "(Expletive) Blacks Matter," "Trump 4 President," swastikas and a homophobic slur.

Police were searching the neighborhood for surveillance cameras that may have captured images from the incident.

No arrests have been made.
