(LOSANGELES.CBSLOCAL) — Two nativity scenes were vandalized overnight in Huntington Beach, according to officials.

Jeff Nguyen, reporting for CBS2 and KCAL9, spoke to a homeowner whose nativity scene was vandalized.

Richard Candlish told Nguyen his holiday decorations give him a sense of pride. But this morning he felt a sense of vulnerability after someone degraded his decorations.

Someone scrawled “HAIL Hitler” on his baby Jesus as well as drawing a Hitler-style mustache. “They misspelled HEIL. It really goes to the ignorance of the people who did it,” says Candlish.
