Grover Beach police are looking for two people who they call "persons of interest" in a graffiti investigation.

Graffiti that police described as both racist and sexual in nature was found at Grover Beach Elementary School on Monday morning. It included an image of a hanging stick figure and a racial slur.

On Tuesday, police released photos of two people who they say were seen on school video surveillance walking with a dog.
