NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Swastikas and anti-Semitic graffiti were found outside of a Jewish woman’s Manhattan home Monday, officials say.

According to police the graffiti was first discovered in the hallways of a co-op by a custodian around 8:30 a.m.

Brandi Goldstein was heading back to her Lower East Side apartment when she noticed the swastikas and graffiti.

“I walk up the stairs and I see a terrible word and then “blank” Jews, and then it says blank you and then it says blank Jews again," Goldstein told NBC4. "And then just Jews and some tag I cannot understand.”

There was also what appeared to be an attempt at a Swastika right by Goldstein's apartment door.

Police said that the building, which is located on Grand Street has security at the front door but currently, it is not known when or how the suspect or suspects were able to gain access to the stairwell.

Security cameras are located in the lobby of the building where the majority of residents are jewsih. However, there are no cameras where hateful graffiti was found.

Officials and the Hate Crimes Task Force are involved in the investigation.

So far no arrests have been made.
