Area law enforcement have arrested a suspect in three hate-motivated incidents, including antisemitic graffiti found earlier this week at the Jewish Community Center of Northern Virginia


Dylan M. Mahone, 20, of Annandale, was arrested Wednesday night, according to a statement by Fairfax County police. He is charged with two counts each of felony destruction of property, placing a swastika on religious property with the intent to intimidate and wearing a mask in public to conceal one’s identity.


Detectives collected video of at least one incident and were able to positively identify Mahone as the suspect, according to the Fairfax police statement. Officers arrested Mahone on Wednesday at his home.
