FLOYD COUNTY, Ind. – Investigators are looking for the ones responsible for spray painting graffiti of a Nazi symbol and genitalia in southern Indiana.
The Seymour Tribune says vandals painted a swastika and an upside down cross on a sign outside the Azalea Hills retirement community in Floyds Knobs, as well as a school bus in Floyd County.
Floyd County Sheriff Frank Loop says teenagers may have been responsible for the vandalism, but he believes no particular person or group was targeted.
The Jewish Community Relations Council of Indianapolis posted on its Facebook page that it condemns the anti-semitic and homophobic vandalism in Floyd Knobs, Indiana and that it takes “every act of hate seriously no matter who the perpetrator(s) may be.”
Police say no one has been arrested so far for the vandalism.
In July, someone painted anti-Semitic graffiti at a Carmel synagogue, which led Governor Eric Holcomb to call for state lawmakers to pass a hate crime bill next year in the General Assembly. Indiana is one of only five states that does not have laws specifically against hate crimes.
