Philadelphia Police Investigating After Threats Of Violence Emailed To Jewish Community Center

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- Philadelphia police say they are investigating another racially motivated incident in the city. Someone emailed threats of violence to a Jewish community center.

Police didn't name the center.

It comes as police look for a woman in Oxford Circle. She was caught on camera putting up offensive pieces of paper on the building of Kreative Legends, a Black-owned studio on Cottman Avenue.

The owner said the letters on the papers spelled out "you aren't welcome."

Police Commissioner Danielle Outlaw responded in a statement, saying: "These acts of intolerance that are meant to instill fear in others is not only unacceptable behavior. It is illegal. The PPD is fully investigating these incidents. There's no place for hate in the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection."
