BROOKLYN — Police are investigating anti-Semitic graffiti, including a swastika, that was found sprayed in a stairwell of a Brooklyn high school.

An employee of Brooklyn Tech High School found the message written in black marker inside the third-floor stairwell, police said.

The discovery of the graffiti Thursday followed a wave of anti-Semitic attacks in and around New York City.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Saturday he has directed the State Police Hate Crimes Task Force to assist NYPD in its inquiry into the graffiti.

No arrests have been made in the case.
