Malicious Harassment / Property Damage in South Seattle

Sometime overnight or in the early morning hours of September 13th “swastika” graffiti was painted on two synagogues, on the driveway portion leading to a synagogue, and on the sidewalk in front of private residences in the area. The synagogues are located in the 6500 block of 52nd Avenue South and the 5100 block of South Morgan Street. Officers responded to the various crime scenes and are actively investigating. All information gathered is being forwarded to our Bias Crimes detective. This is an active Malicious Harassment/Property Damage investigation.

The private property owners are currently removing the graffiti from their property while SDOT is removing the graffiti from the public areas that were defaced. The Seattle Police Department treats this situation very seriously and encourages anyone who may have information about these incidents to call our Bias Crimes Unit at (206) 233-3898 and refer to these incidents.
