GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Police at East Carolina University are investigating a report of an anti-Semitic message left on a bathroom wall in a residence hall.

A resident adviser reported that the words were scratched into the paint of the wall in a men’s bathroom stall in Fletcher Residence Hall. Police believe the statement may have been on the wall for some time and that a recent off-campus incident heightened awareness and prompted the report to police.

The incident, reported on Sept. 6, is being investigated as a potential bias crime. Police said they do not believe the graffiti is directed toward a specific individual, and that it has nothing to do with a Sept. 4 off-campus incident. Two students are charged after a spray-painted swastika was found on the door of an apartment.
