Pensacola Police have confirmed they are investigating yet another incident of antisemitism in the city.

It comes after a fifth occurrence was discovered near the I-110 ramp near Gregory Street, close to the new Blake Doyle Skatepark. It’s been sprayed on a brick thrown into a Jewish community center and then on two other bricks that shattered a synagogue window.

Earlier Friday, graffiti was found scribbled on street signs, not far from the Pensacola synagogue that was hit.

It’s the latest case of vandalism that’s violated the City of Pensacola.

Police said they’re now looking into the newest case, on a quiet dead end street, on the 1-110 off ramp near Gregory Street and are not able to confirm if there’s a connection until after they make an arrest.
