Fynn Ajani Arthur, 21, was arrested on Thursday for allegedly scrawling “KKK,” swastikas and “I’m gonna kill all n****rs” across Goucher College campus.
Arthur reportedly wrote the numbers of several dorm rooms along with his threats, one of which was his own.
A black college lacrosse player has been arrested in connection with two incidents of racist graffiti found in a dorm on the Goucher College campus in Maryland.
Fynn Ajani Arthur, a 21-year-old from Brunswick, Maine, was charged with two counts of malicious destruction of property on Thursday night in Baltimore County.
His arrest came after graffiti aimed at black and Latino students was found on the second floor of a campus dorm, one floor above where similar graffiti had been found on November 14, Goucher College administrators said in a statement.
Both incidents that shook the Towson campus involved backward swastikas and targeted specific individuals, according to the statement.
Thursday’s graffiti depicted swastikas, the letters ‘KKK’ and appeared to include the last names of four black students, including Arthur. The previous graffiti reportedly said all ‘n*****s’ on campus would be killed.
Here’s some coverage from Twitter after the incident occurred:

#IamStudent104 I’m absolutely disgusted at the lack of regard for the safety of these three targeted students as well as the rest of the black community on campus. We are actively seeked out and killed for just being! This is a threat to our safety ! Goucher DO BETTER! pic.twitter.com/PZMo3HE2w8
