Police are investigating a flurry of swastika vandalism over the weekend in three major US cities.
Chicago Police released a surveillance video Saturday that shows a man smashing the front window of a synagogue and placing swastikas on the front door.
In the video, the suspect pulls up to the synagogue curb in a dark-colored SUV just after midnight, places the stickers on the front door and then breaks the glass with a metal object. He then gets back in the car and flees the scene.
The man is wearing dark clothing and a dark head mask, police said.
The incident is being investigated as a hate crime.
“The Chicago Jewish community will not be intimidated by anti-Semitic attacks on a house of worship,” American Jewish Committee Director Amy Stoken said in a statement to CNN.
In Houston, campus police at Rice University are investigating the swastika vandalism of the school’s William Marsh Rice statue.
