The Morgantown Police Department confirmed to WDTV that officers responded to reports of the vandalism at the senator's office late Sunday morning.

A police report was filed after black spray-painted letters were found on the building Sunday morning, reading "f--- Capito, f--- Capital." The graffiti was reportedly placed there between midnight and 9 a.m. on Sunday. 


The owner of the office's building, who was unaware of the graffiti before being notified by police, has since removed the offensive language. 

Capito represents a state President Trump won by a large margin in the 2016 presidential election.
