UNINCORPORATED MOKENA – Police say an Israeli flag was defaced with Nazi graffiti earlier this month.
Will County Sheriff’s Police were called June 13 to a residence in the 12000 block of West Lauffer Road where a 55-year-old man reported the vandalism.
According to reports, the man came outside to find two 12-inch swastikas spray-painted on the 2-by-4-foot Israel flag that was on a pole in the front yard.
Police reports do not list any suspect information.
“I asked [the victim] if he had any idea who would have damaged his flag and he stated ‘I have no idea. I’m not even Jewish,’ ” a deputy reported.
