A kosher butcher shop in Copenhagen was vandalized for the second time in a year.

The attack on the shop in the Danish capital occurred Wednesday night and was discovered early Thursday, the news website BT reported, based on a statement by the local police force.

At around 3:40 a.m., a patrol car reported that a brick had been thrown through the shop display window.

The previous attack, in April 2015, involved the scrawling of the words: “Jew pig” on the window.

But a police spokesperson told BT, “There’s nothing that points in a direction” of a hate crime in the investigation of the more recent attack.

Separately, a Holocaust memorial monument was vandalized this week in the town of Pouliguen in western France, RCA Radio reported. Unveiled last year in memory of 22 locals who had been murdered in the genocide, that monument, too, has been the target of two attacks over the past 12 months. In both those cases, perpetrators threw black paint on the monument.

In a third incident reported this week, unidentified individuals painted anti-Semitic profanities on the gravesite of Yisroel Salanter, a 19th-century rabbi from what is today the Russian city of Kaliningrad.
