Eugene police are investigating swastikas that were tagged near a Jewish fraternity.

Bryan Kalbrosky is a student and member of the University of Oregon’s Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity. On his way to class on Monday, he noticed a dozen swastikas drawn on a cluster mailbox near the fraternity house.  

Kalbrosky: “In the Eugene community, this is a rare thing to see. I’ve never seen swastikas in Eugene before and I know that it’s definitely a fairly progressive place when it comes to that type of thinking. So that’s what really caught me off guard.”
