The Toledo Blade reported:
Authorities say charges have been filed in connection to a graffiti incident on the garage door of an Arab family in Lucas County.
Sylvania Township police say Osama Nazzal, 28, of Toledo, was charged with criminal damaging in connection to the incident.
On Jan. 10, the Sylvania Twp. home of Souheir Eltatawi had been spray-painted with a swastika and derogatory phrase that read, “Expletive Arabs.”
The deputy chief praised the detective in this investigation. There were no witnesses to or video of the act, he said.Mr. Nazzal told police this was not a matter of ethnic intimidation, Deputy Chief Rettig said. He declined to say what police believe motivated the suspect.
“It was a good old-fashioned police work with very limited resources, very limited evidence,” he said.
Mr. Nazzal is scheduled to be arraigned March 1 in Sylvania Municipal Court.
