While we don’t see what was written on the barbaric halal slaughter market, it is reported that it referred to Allah and allegedly included an offensive sexual epithet. Portland police continue to investigate but had brought no charges by late Monday.
Press HeraldThe graffiti was sprayed onto the Portland Halal Market on St. John Street at 5 a.m. Sunday. In red capital letters on the windows and brick on a side of the building, it referred to Allah and included a sexual epithet. Police described it as a hate crime. Similar writing, though not with the same offensive message, had been seen in prior weeks, police said.
Police released a security video in an effort to locate the suspect.
