FAIRVIEW PARK, OH (WOIO) - Extreme racism has made its way into Northeast Ohio once again.

A hateful message was discovered by children who were outside playing of their house.

Someone hung a noose similar the one shown from a tree in the family's front yard.

The noose came with a note reading "get the "f" out" and had a Swastika on the back signed "The Aryan Knights of Fairview.

Homeowner Frederick Howery tells 19 Action News "it's not right, we haven't bothered anybody."

Fairview Police believe the incident happened sometime late Saturday evening or early Sunday morning.

Fairview Park Police are asking anyone with information surrounding this incident to contact the department.
