LAS VEGAS – The FBI is investigating a suspected hate crime at Clark High School in Las Vegas after a swastika was found carved on the back of a Jewish student with autism.
The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) confirmed the incident, and Jolie Brislin, the ADL Nevada Executive Director, described it as “one of the most egregious incidents that I’ve seen,” noting that the student was targeted because of his faith and vulnerability due to his disability.
The school district conducted an investigation, including interviews with staff and a review of available camera footage, but found no evidence indicating the origin of the injuries.
The ADL has tracked a 36% increase in anti-Semitic incidents over the past year and is now working with Clark High School to provide training on anti-Semitism and bias.
Anyone with information related to the incident is urged to contact the FBI or the ADL Nevada.
