Swastikas painted at southern Indiana retirement community

A second incident of anti-Semitic graffiti in Indiana has been cleaned up.

Spray-painted vandalism including swastikas, upside-down crosses and drawings of genitalia were found Monday in Floyds Knobs. Sheriff Frank Loop said authorities suspect teenagers were behind the vandalism at a retirement community and to a New Albany-Floyd County school bus. The Azalea Hills retirement community added temporary security patrols afterward.

Cassie McCoun, an administrator at Azalea Hills, told the News and Tribune she didn’t think the vandalism was targeting a specific group.

The Jewish Community Relations Council condemned the anti-Semitic graffiti and says it takes such incidents seriously.

The Floyds Knobs incident follows the Nazi flags and iron crosses that were spray-painted at the end of July on two walls of a brick shed at Congregation Shaarey Tefilla in Carmel.
