Anti-Semitic Symbol, Racist Word Reportedly Drawn on Broadway Car
Police responded to Broadway at about noon Wednesday to investigate a possible hate crime.
Once there, police heard from the reporting party, who said that someone had drawn offensive material into the dust on her car on two separate occasions.
The night of Halloween, Wednesday, Oct. 31, someone had drawn a swastika on her car’s back window, she said. At the time, she thought it was a random act.
Then on Monday, Nov. 5, she woke up to find another swastika in the dust on her car, along with the “N-word,” she said. That’s when she decided to call police.
