Cohen said the community worked to collect pictures and video evidence of the suspect.
Last week, residents fought the hate with love, painting over the anti-semitic symbol with rainbow hearts.
“This is not acceptable. This is not who we are,” said resident Luann Carra. “We’re an open loving community.”
