Police are investigating hate crimes at Western Connecticut State University.
A student discovered a gay slur written on a dry erase board outside her dorm room inside Litchfield Hall Feb. 27. She did not report the incident right away.

On March 3, the student reported another gay slur written on a paper attached to her dorm room in Litchfield Hall.
"Such acts are not tolerated at Western," Paul Steinmentz, a university spokesperson, said. "Our police department is investigating, and if the perpetrator is caught, that person will face criminal charged and administrative punishment.
Members of WCSU's Office of Student Life will be meeting with students to answer questions about the incidents, according to Steinmentz.
