On Saturday racist slurs were painted on a house in Bloomfield Drive.
Councillor Laura McNamee said: “This attack is totally despicable and the community is united in condemning it.
“People should be able to live without fear of intimidation and there is no place in our society for this type of crime.
“Those behind this disgusting attack do not speak for the community and must be apprehended and punished for their actions. I would call on anyone with information to come forward and contact the PSNI as soon as possible.”
