The word “Jew” was spray-painted on the windows and in the parking lot of BerMax Caffe and Bistro, which is run by a observant Jewish family. The restaurant serves Italian and Middle Eastern meals out of its Corydon Avenue location.
Const. Jay Murray, a spokesman for Winnipeg police, said police received a report of graffiti at the restaurant Friday morning.
The incident is now being looked into by hate crimes investigators within the Major Crimes Unit, Murray said.
