Graffiti vandals target Clifford's Tower in York
A 31-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident, which took place on Friday.
Graffiti was painted on the outside wall of the castle, which is almost 1,000 years old.
Pc Simon Fennel of York Police said: "It is upsetting that someone would see fit to deface one of the city's historic monuments."
Police said they had received reports of similar damage to York Crown Court earlier the same day.
Pc Fennel said: "We are keen to bring those responsible to justice."
