Police appeal for witnesses following antisemitic graffiti at Burwood school

Whitehorse Crime Investigation Unit detectives are appealing for public assistance after a school was vandalised with antisemitic graffiti in Burwood last week.

An external wall of a college on Station Street was vandalised with an offensive message written in black paint, sometime between 9pm on Friday and 12pm on Saturday 25 May.

No arrests have been made and the investigation into the incident remains ongoing.

Victoria Police takes any reports of racial or religious based crime extremely seriously.

Investigators have been in regular communication with the college since a report was made to police and understand that this incident has been extremely difficult for the school community. There is absolutely no place at all in our society for antisemitic sentiments or behaviour.

As part of the investigation into the incident police will be speaking to residents of nearby properties and canvassing the local neighbourhood for CCTV footage. Police have already been conducting regular patrols of the areas surrounding the college.

Anyone who witnessed the incident, has dashcam/CCTV footage or information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or www.crimestoppersvic.com.au
