Police investigating racist graffiti in Giants player's home

MOONACHIE, N.J. (AP) Police are investigating a break-in and racist graffiti scrawled on the wall at the New Jersey home of an injured New York Giants player.

Moonachie police Sgt. Richard Behrens tells The Record (http://bit.ly/2h0klFN) police are investigating the break-in at Nikita Whitlock's home as a hate crime. Whitlock, who's black, showed the graffiti to reporters, including ''KKK'' and a swastika. The name ''Trump'' was also written on the wall in marker.

Whitlock is a fullback on the injured reserve list with a foot injury. He was suspended for 10 games without pay in September for violating the NFL policy on performance-enhancing substances.
