Anti-Semitic graffiti prompts authorities to seek public’s help


WEST HOLLYWOOD (CNS) – The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is seeking the public’s help today to identify a person caught on surveillance footage vandalizing a storefront with graffiti that appears to be anti-Semitic.

The footage appears to show a man spray painting the window of the Block Party store in the 8800 block of Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood. On Tuesday morning, Block Party reported finding anti-Semitic graffiti on their window, said Lt. Bill Moulder of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

It was the second report of anti-Semitic graffiti in West Hollywood this week. On Sunday, graffiti was found on a poster outside the Bayou Bar, in the 8900 block of Santa Monica Boulevard, a couple of blocks from Block Party, Moulder said.

The graffiti outside Bayou said “Hitler was right” with a five-point star possibly meant to be the six-point Star of David. The graffiti outside Block Party showed a similar five-point star, as well as the letters GD and LK, according to Moulder.

The Sheriff’s Department is investigating to determine whether the two incidents are related.

Anyone with information about the case is encouraged to contact the West Hollywood Sheriff Station at 310-855-8850.
