— A 12-year-old and 13-year-old are suspected of spray-painting racist comments and symbols on several businesses across the street from a Cary shopping center, authorities said Wednesday.

The incidents happened early Wednesday near Cary Towne Center.

A van belonging to El Rey Del Taco Taqueria was covered in swastika symbols, as well as the words "war," "skins" and "skin heads."

Other markings attacked blacks, Asians, Jews and homosexuals.

The police department's juvenile department is investigating the case.
