Sylvania Township neighborhood reacts to racist graffiti painted on garage

A Sylvania Township family says they can’t imagine how anyone could paint the racist graffiti they discovered on their garage door Tuesday night.

Someone painted a swastika and cursed Arabs in the graffiti on a house in the 7000 block of Cinnamon Teal Court. Sylvania Township police are investigating the incident as an act of “ethnic intimidation,” according to a media release today from police.

“I feel the hate of those people,” homeowner Souheir Eltatawy said. “I don’t know why they did that. We’ve been living in this neighborhood since 1999 and we’ve never had a problem with anyone. Even when the kids were growing up, we never had a problem with any of the neighbors.”

Her daughter May Eltatawy discovered the graffiti when she returned home at roughly 8:30 p.m.

1. Close to Toledo, one of the most conservative cities in Ohio.

That sort of thing could happen just about anywhere, though.
