A home in Chatsworth was vandalized with toilet paper, feces and the word "Jew" scrawled in maple syrup alongside swastikas.

The homeowner says he believes that the vandalism might have been a prank pulled by former friends of his daughter, but police are investigating the vandalism as a hate crime because of its anti-Semitic message, according to the Jewish Journal.

The homeowner, the son of a Holocaust survivor who asked for anonymity, said the vandalism happened overnight before he woke up on Tuesday morning. He posted the image of his vandalized home on Facebook and the Jewish Journal has a copy of it here.

He told the Journal, "It’s 2012 and we're still dealing with people hating Jews because we’re Jews."
