WANTAGE, N.J. (AP) - Someone defaced a New Jersey diner with anti-Semitic graffiti, leaving employees shocked and angry.

Workers arriving at the Airport Diner in Wantage on Sunday found swastikas, “Heil Hitler” and “Kill Jews” written on the walls. A freezer also was vandalized.

“I didn’t know what to think,” Miguel Velez, of Wantage, told the New Jersey Herald (https://bit.ly/2xfYf9N ). “Why here, of all places?”

Sharon Smith, of Frankford, said she arrived for her shift and wasn’t really sure of what she was seeing on the building. Once she realized what it was, Smith said she could not believe it.

Smith called it “random acts of stupidity.”

“I want to believe it’s a bunch of young kids that don’t know the meanings of the messages, they think it’s a cool thing to do or whatever,” she said. “But, in another sense, you just don’t know anymore.”

State police said no arrests have been made.
