A pair of Nativity Scenes were vandalized in Huntington Beach, and police said the two incidents appear to be related.

A homeowner in the 1600 block of Woodstock Lane said he found several pieces of his Nativity Scene vandalized Sunday morning. Obscene pictures were drawn on some figures. The words "Hail Hitler" were written on the forehead of the baby Jesus figure.

"It's for the families and the neighborhood to enjoy and these hooligans, whoever they may be, took the time to vandalize it, and it took me a couple of hours to try and at least erase the vandalism this morning," said homeowner Richard Candlish.

Similar words and pictures were drawn on nativity figures outside the nearby Saint Bonaventure Catholic Parish. No one has been arrested.
