Swastika put on Jewish mailbox



EUGENE (AP) — Eugene police are investigating swastikas that were found painted onto mailboxes near a Jewish fraternity near the University of Oregon.

The Register-Guard says the mailbox belongs to a neighboring apartment complex but directly faces the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity.

Police spokeswoman Melinda McLaughlin said there are no suspects at this time.

Fraternity members discovered the swastikas Monday evening.

Oregon Hillel’s executive director Andy Gitelson condemned the vandalism as “a hate symbol.”

The fraternity posted a message on Facebook saying it won’t let Anti-Semitism derail its mission “of creating the future Jewish leaders of tomorrow.”
