Anti-semitic graffiti reported in West Campus

A hate crime was reported in West Campus by The University of Texas at Austin

Anti-semitic graffiti has been reported at 2501 Leon St.

The University of Texas Police Department released an incident report that the hate crime took place at 10 p.m. Jan. 10. UTPD has not revealed any suspects involved, and is asking for tips on the incident.

This comes just over one week after Americans bearing white supremacist symbolism stormed the U.S. Capitol. The FBI released a bulletin on Monday informing the public of nationwide protests which are expected to take place from Jan. 16 through President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration on Jan. 20.
