RIDGEFIELD -

Ridgefield police are searching for the person who left anti-Semitic graffiti at a town park for the second time in eight months.

Police say a stage at Ballard Park, which holds many concerts and events, was covered with anti-Semitic symbols and phrases, including swastikas and other hate symbols, Wednesday. Parks & Recreation has since cleaned it up.

Rabbi David Reiner sent a letter out to his congregation at Shir Shalom, saying this kind of hatred will not keep him away from Ballard Park.

Police would not comment on camera, but say they are investigating the latest incident.
