Los Angeles Police Department authorities are continuing to investigate a recent series of hate incidents in the Wilshire Division, including graffiti that was found on Nov. 4 on the garage door of a residence in Beverly Grove.
A resident in the 6600 block of Lindenhurst Avenue contacted police around 10 p.m. about the graffiti, which read “Feed the Jews to the Pigs.” No suspects have been identified and police are seeking leads.
Authorities continue to investigate hate graffiti that was found early on Nov. 1 in the Fairfax District beneath a mural in the parking lot at Canter’s Deli, and on the ground near a Jewish store located a block south of the deli on Fairfax Avenue. Graffiti with a similar writing style and paint was also found on Nov. 1 on a temple building at 360 N. La Brea Ave., police said.
Officers are also searching for a suspect who allegedly battered a victim around 10:30 a.m. on Nov. 1 in the 400 block of North Fairfax Avenue. A victim reported he was carrying an Israeli flag when he was confronted by a male suspect who attempted to kick him. The victim was struck in the hand and sustained a slight injury. The suspect also allegedly threw a rock at the victim as he was fleeing.
