Police are investigating a vandalism spree that included offensive graffiti.

Officers said vehicles, campers, garbage cans, a garage door and street signs were tagged with yellow, silver and green paint.

The graffiti includes racial slurs, religious symbols, hate speech and other negative words.

Sexual images were also spray painted in several places on the street in that neighborhood.

Denver police said they are looking for two, white juvenile males in connection with the vandalism, but they didn't release any other information about the suspects.

The neighborhood that was hit is in the area of Exposition Avenue and Grape Street. That's near Holly Street and Leetsdale Drive.

Denver7's Daryl Orr said the vandalism extends to at least five blocks.
