Penn State, State College police and the Anti-Defamation League are trying to find whoever sprayed anti-Semitic graffiti on vehicles parked behind a Jewish fraternity and another frat house, along with a garage and garbage container.
The graffiti included swastikas and other anti-Semitic slogans, along with sexual pictures and phrases.
The university issued a statement Tuesday supporting the Jewish fraternity, Beta Sigma Beta, and pledging to investigate. Some of the cars targeted were parked behind the Delta Sigma Phi fraternity.
The university says State College police have jurisdiction over the neighborhood in question, and have offered a $1,000 reward for information on the vandalism.
The university says, "Hateful behavior that feeds anxiety and division among us simply must not stand."
Police say the graffiti was spray-painted sometime late Thursday or early Friday.
