WATCH: ABC7's Tom Roussey reports from campus with the latest.

Anti-Semitic vandalism was found in an elevator at the University of Maryland and a noose was discovered in two separate incidents of “bias and hate” incidents, the university reports.

In a letter issued Wednesday by University president Wallace Loh, the school reports that the elevator vandalized was in an academic building while the noose was discovered in a space being renovated.

Sources tell ABC7 the vandalized elevator is in the  Biology/Psychology Building and the noose was found at a computer program building that’s under renovation.

“These incidents are abhorrent,” University president Wallace Loh says in a letter issued Wednesday. “The University of Maryland does not tolerate hate or bias in any form. And, it is the right of all members of our community to work and live in an environment in which they feel safe, respected, and included.”
