Hate-fuelled graffiti has appeared in several places in Portishead.
Areas in St Marys Road, Combe Road and near Waitrose have seen criminal activity with graffiti messages sprayed around the town.
A spokesman on behalf of Avon and Somerset Constabulary posted on Facebook: “Some of this graffiti is offensive towards a named individual and therefore could be considered a hate crime.
“Someone knows who is doing this and I would appeal to those people to consider the upset it is causing and provide some information as to who the perpetrators are.
“For people with children at school, I would like you to consider how you would feel if your child was being victimised in this way.
“Please ask your child if they know anything about this and let either the police or Crimestoppers know.”
Anyone with information should call 101 or can anonymously contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.
