Anti-Semitic graffiti found at two Connecticut high schools

WESTPORT — Authorities are investigating after swastikas and other anti-Semitic graffiti were found at two Connecticut high schools.

WTNH-TV reports that the graffiti was found in bathrooms in Hamden High School on Wednesday.

The graffiti did not indicate any specific or imminent threats.

In an email to parents, school administrators said they are taking "an uncompromising stance against such abhorrent, exclusionary displays."

The Connecticut Post reports that Westport schools Interim Superintendent David Abbey says swastikas and Stars of David with expletives near them were found in several places at Staples High School.

Abbey says the school is "actively partnering with the Westport Police Department as we move forward with our investigation."

A cleaning crew worked on removing the graffiti in time for school Friday.
