Anti-Semitic graffiti found in Crown Heights station

CROWN HEIGHTS - Police say anti-Semitic graffiti was found scrawled along the walls of a Crown Heights subway station.

According to police, the graffiti at the Kingston Avenue train station had an image equating the Jewish Star of David to a swastika. The graffiti also made a reference backing Hamas after Israel's recent incursion into the Gaza Strip.

"I think it's a cowardly act," says Levi Gajer, of Crown Heights. "They know who Hamas is, they know that they're terrorists."

New York City Transit officials say all the graffiti has been removed. The investigation is ongoing.
