Anti-Semitic graffiti scrawled on Wheaton campus

Posted: Updated:

NORTON (FOX 25 / MyFoxBoston.com) - Anti-Semitic graffiti has been found scrawled on a Jewish students' home on the Wheaton College campus.

School President Ronald Crutcher said in an e-mail to faculty and students that the graffiti was discovered Sunday morning on the back door of the Jewish Life House. He says the students told him this isn't the first time they've been targeted. The students also heard derogatory shouts coming from the street next to their home Friday night.

Crutcher says such behavior won't be tolerated at Wheaton College, a small private liberal arts school in southeastern Massachusetts.

He asks that anyone with information about the graffiti contact the school's public safety department and Norton police.

Crutcher says the school will hold a campus meeting later to discuss the graffiti and speak out against bigotry.
