Swastikas Spray Painted Outside AEPi House

University of Oregon Jewish fraternity house has been vandalized before

Print Email

Swastikas were painted on the mailboxes in front of the house belonging to Jewish fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi at the University of Oregon in Eugene, JTA reports. According to the Daily Emerald, the school’s student newspaper, the fraternity filed a report with Eugene Police on Monday night. A police spokeswoman told the Daily Emerald there is no information about possible suspects.

According to Eugene television station KMTR, the mailbox on which the swastika was spray painted is not the fraternity’s mailbox, so it’s not clear whether the graffiti was directly intended for the fraternity.

This wouldn’t be the first time that the fraternity has been victim to anti-Semitism vandalism, though—a student told KMTR that swastikas were spray painted on the fraternity’s back door several years ago.
