(WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- A city official says an apartment in Rogers Park has been targeted with anti-gay graffiti twice in the past eight days.

The apartment building is in the 14-hundred block of West Arthur.

In the window: a rainbow flag.

Officials say that just over a week ago, an anti-gay slur was spray-painted on the wall of the building, right under the flag.

"It's disturbing. It's disturbing that it happened the first time last week,” said 49th Ward Ald. Maria Hadden.

She said another incident happened at the same building -- same location, same anti-gay slur – but with different color paint.

"There was an additional offense of someone spray-painting a bigoted, hateful word on an individual's property."

Chicago Police confirmed both incidents.
