WESTFIELD, NJ — Three swastikas crudely drawn out in chalk on a residential street were washed away after being reported to authorities over the weekend, police said.
Police learned of the swastikas drawn onto the roadway on Park Street at 5 p.m. on Saturday, said Chief Chris Battiloro on Monday. Nothing else was written in the street, Battiloro said, citing the incident report.
Hollie Hartford, who has lived with her family on Park Street for the past four years, told TAPinto she reported the graffiti found in the public right of way, close to the end of her driveway and in the center the intersection Park Street and Carleton Road.
While the police report did not detail the swastikas’ size, Hartford said, the largest was about 4 foot in diameter and another approximately 1 foot in diameter. A photograph of another provided by her appears smaller.
As of Monday, police had no suspects or leads in the case, said Battiloro.
Anyone with additional information on the incident may contact Detective Dennis DaSilva at 908-789-6085.
