California officials are asking for the public’s help to catch a black suspect who has allegedly been drawing swastikas and other racist graffiti on the Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART), according to a Friday report.

The BART police believe that one man is responsible for a series of swastikas and various racial slurs that have cropped up on BART stations and trains, Patch reported Friday. The agency announced that it would be seeking criminal charges against the person responsible for the drawings.

“This offensive vandalism will not be tolerated by BART,” the agency said in a statement. “Whenever it is reported we will respond immediately to clean it up, and BART intends to pursue criminal charges. Most importantly, we want to provide a safe environment for our riders. That’s why we’re providing these images of the suspect to the public.”

Police released video screen-grabs of a man allegedly drawing a swastika at the Embarcadero Station. Police believe that the man seen drawing at that station is also responsible for graffiti at stations likes San Leandro, Glen Park and MacArthur.

Police have called on the public to provide information about the man’s identity and crews were sent to the Embarcadero Station to wipe off the graffiti.
