Police in Newark, Delaware are searching for the suspect who left racist graffiti on apartment garages near the University of Delaware.

NEWARK, Delaware (WPVI) -- Police in Newark, Delaware, continue to investigate what led to racist graffiti on a student apartment building near the University of Delaware.

There's a tradition written in the dust on garage door window panes.

It's the names of University of Delaware students who live here along South Chapel Drive.

The dust has been wiped away in some areas, because that tradition has been marred.

Friday evening, University of Delaware officials released a statement in part reads:

"Earlier today a University of Delaware student discovered a hateful, racist message, including the n-word, written on a garage door at her off campus apartment."

But it wasn't just on one garage, police say it happened at another on the same block.

Newark Police are investigating these incidents, but so far, no arrests have been made.
