Ohio Jewish couple say they were victims of anti-Semitic hate crime by their neighbor


(JTA) — A Jewish couple in Ohio say their neighbor yelled anti-Semitic threats at them and threw rocks through their window on the day that Joe Biden was declared the winner of the presidential election.

Federal, state and county authorities are investigating the incident as a hate crime, according to the local ABC affiliate.

Nick and Tiffany Kinney of Columbus say that on the night of Nov. 7, when media outlets called the election for Biden, their neighbor approached them, spat on them and said he was “tired of us liberals,” then said “horrible things about Hitler, it’s no wonder Hitler burned our people, he knows we are Jewish,” Nick Kinney told ABC-6.

According to Tiffany Kinney, the neighbor said, “I’ll put a bullet through your head like Hitler.”

The couple believe the neighbor then threw the rocks that shattered their door and window.
