Antisemitic Graffiti Discovered Outside South Florida Restaurant

Police are searching for a vandal who left swastikas scrawled for everyone to see outside the Flanigan’s in Hallandale Beach.

A swastika and a jumbled scribble were painted on the wall outside the restaurant, Wednesday.

Ignacio Escandon, the restaurant’s assistant manager, spoke with 7News about the signs of hate. He said someone had contacted the police.

Hallandale Police officers who came to look found more swastikas faintly etched in light poles in the restaurant’s parking lot.

“It’s just a shame that somebody would be doing this too, you know, a family-owned business down over here,” said Escandon, “and personally, that’s just not what this company is representing.”

It’s far from the first time swastikas have been spotted in Broward County. Last year swastikas showed up painted onto signs and playground equipment in Weston.

Back in March, they were even scrawled into the dust on car windshields in Dania Beach. They were also seen on the walls of a bathroom at Cooper City High School back in May.

Incidents like these across the state led to a law that would make such vandalism a third-degree felony.

The signs have been cleaned, wiped and painted over by Hallandale Police officers.
