USA - Swastika spray painted on Jewish family's garage in Cape Cod

Cape Cod, Massachusetts
- A swastika was spray painted onto the garage of a Jewish family in Sandwich, Massachusetts, a town located on Cape Code.

According to the Sandwich Police Department, the antisemitic graffiti, which also included a racial slur, was discovered on August 21 by Janet Geist Moore, who is Jewish, after her family arrived home. Police said it could have been done by someone who knew them, possibly due to a dispute. They stated they were not certain it was hate motivated.

However, Jewish residents of the Cape Code town disputed the idea that the incident could be downplayed as “just some ignorant kids.”
