Monmouth Heights at Manalapan, NJ - Spray painted symbols of swastikas were placed on a road sign and similar symbols and defamatory graffiti was found on approximately 12 houses in the Monmouth Heights neighborhood, according to Monmouth County Prosecutor Christopher Grammiccioni.
The graffiti was found solely in the area of Route 9 and Taylors Mills Road, Grammiccioni said. The Prosecutor’s office was made aware of the defacement at approximately 12:30 a.m. on Thursday and an investigation immediately began.
The Anti-Defamation League issued a statement this afternoon condemning what they referred to as a "hate filled grafitti spree" citing that red swastikas were painted on fences, street signs, sidewalks, mailboxes and even a car. In some areas the words "kill the Jews" were even painted, according to the statement.
