Calgary police are investigating vandalism involving anti-Semitic messages as a hate crime.

CPS said Thursday that the message “I love Hitler” as well as “other profanity” was found written on the ground of a playground parking lot at 384 Woodvale Drive S.W.

They believe the writing was left between 9 p.m. Tuesday and 8:30 a.m. Wednesday.

In a statement, police said Tuesday of this week holds some historical significance, since April 20 was Nazi leader Adolf Hitler’s birthday.

Hate-motivated crimes involve bias, prejudice or hate based on religion, race, sexual orientation or other characteristics.

Police said the messages were written by an “unknown person” and they’re looking to speak with anyone who witnessed the incident or who has information about who was involved.

Anyone with information can call police at 403-266-1234 or report tips anonymously to Crime Stoppers.
