CARY, N.C. — A Cary synagogue that received threats last month was vandalized Thursday night, authorities said.

A town spokesperson said police were called to Congregation Sha’arei Shalom at 700 Old Apex Road at about 6 p.m.

Rabbi Seth Klayman, who was out of town, said in a phone call to WRAL News that the synagogue’s windows had been broken and profanity was spray painted on the side of the building.

Klayman could not say if the vandalism was random or a targeted act.

Police are investigating the incident, but said they do not believe it was a hate crime.

Last month, William Josephus Warden, 20, was charged with ethnic intimidation after authorities said he rang the doorbell at Sha’arei Shalom and made threats to the person who answered.
