BETHESDA, Md. (AP) -- Police in Montgomery County are investigating vandalism at North Bethesda Middle School and believe it may be linked to a separate incident earlier this week at another school.
Police said they were called to the school Saturday morning and found several school windows had been broken and several cars had paint on them. A sexual drawing and slur word were written on the outside of the school.
Police said they believe that the incident is related to vandalism discovered earlier this week at Herbert Hoover Middle School in Potomac.
Police are also "looking at the possibility" that the incidents are related to another vandalism attack on a Spencerville neighborhood July 13.
In the latest attack on North Bethesda Middle School, vandals were interrupted by an alarm. School security officials discovered the vandalism at 2:40 a.m. July 16. At least six cars on nearby Beech Ave. had also been defaced.
