Police have arrested two suspects for painting a swastika on a synagogue in Indiana: Nolan Brewer, 20, and a co-conspirator who has not been named. The pair are suspected of painting a black swastika and the Nazi Iron Cross last month on a wall at Shaarey Tefilla, a Conservative synagogue near Indianapolis.
