LOS FELIZ, CA — A man was captured writing hate messages on one of the walls of the Hollywood Sikh Temple in Los Feliz in the state of California, last week. The Gurdwara claims to be the first Sikh temple in the US.

In the video, a person is seen writing on the wall and then leaving the site on foot after a witness captures the act on camera.

“I said I was going to call the police on him and the man felt threatened,” witness Karna Ray said. “He said, ‘I will slit your throat.”

The Hollywood police are investigating the incident. Ray, a New York resident, said he encountered the person scribbling with a black sharpie on the clean white wall of the temple.
