Jewish residents of the Stamford Hill section of London were left fearing for their safety after discovering that numerous swastikas had been graffitied onto the building in which they live.

Stamford Hill Shomrim said it was supporting the building residents. They are also in contact with local police who are investigating the incident.

“Shomrim have received multiple calls from very scared residents reporting that the property has been covered with swastikas,” the organization said on Twitter.

Photos posted by Stanford Hill Shomrim showed dozens of swastikas scrawled on various outer parts of the building, including on signs and the door to the bicycle locker.

According to Campaign Against Antisemitism, the building was reportedly the Sidlaw House on Portland Avenue in Stamford Hill.

Shomrim and area police are currently asking for the public's help in providing any information leading to identifying the individuals behind the incident.

The incident came only days after a knife-wielding man harassed Jews leaving a Stamford Hill synagogue on Purim, screaming antisemitic abuse at them.

The assailant, who has since been arrested, allegedly yelled “Heil Hitler, I love Hitler” at congregants as they exited the Darenth Road synagogue.
