Anti-Semitic Graffiti Spray Painted On Atlanta Car Wash

(JTA) — Anti-Semitic graffiti was spray painted on an Atlanta car wash.

The graffiti was discovered at the Auto Spa Bistro, which is also a restaurant, on Monday.

The graffiti included a swastika, a crossed out Star of David and a reference to the Nazi military, according to local television station WGCL-TV.

The incident is being investigated by Atlanta police as a bias hate crime.

The station reported that employees believe the car wash was targeted because it is black owned.
