A Jewish fraternity house at Emory University was vandalized with swastikas a short time after the Jewish Yom Kippur holiday, prompting a police investigation into the anti-Semitic incident, according to report.

Emory’s Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPi) fraternity house was hit with the anti-Semitic graffiti sometime after the Jewish holy day, Business Insider reported, leading police to get involved and boost patrols near the traditionally Jewish fraternity’s home.

An Emory University spokeswoman told Business Insider that the anti-Semitic vandalism would not be tolerated.

"This abhorrent act will not be tolerated and does not reflect the values of the Emory University community," the statement read. "Emory Police officers are actively investigating the incident and have increased patrols to the area. Campus Life officials are meeting with student leaders to provide support and determine next steps for response."

AEPi also condemned the act when reached by the website.

"We are outraged at the insensitive display of prejudice that occurred at the Alpha Epsilon Pi house at Emory University," an AEPi official was quoted as saying. "We are working alongside Emory to ensure that intolerable acts of hate, such as this, will never occur again. We are thankful for the community around us that has shown tremendous support throughout this time."
