(JTA) — In an apparent anti-Semitic incident, a Jewish man found a swastika drawn on his Florida property.

David Cohen, a resident of North Fort Myers, Fla., told police that he found the swastika drawn onto his gate on Monday afternoon, according to news-press.com, a local news site.

Cohen, 72, had put up handmade Hanukkah decorations outside his home the day before and believes it was targeted as a result.

“I can’t even say how mad it makes me feel,” Cohen told news-press.com. “If it was a kid, I’d say they were very stupid. If it was an adult, they are very ignorant.”

Cohen reported the incident to the sheriff’s office and painted over the symbol .
