A Rockland County family business believes they are once again the victim of antisemitism. ​It's over an Israeli flag that was placed outside the Monsey Service Station earlier this month.
The owner's daughter, Lauren Pepper, previously told News 12 that flag was put up to serve as a symbol of pride.
Shortly after that, flyers with antisemitic messages showed up outside her family's business. A week later, someone ripped the flag down and took off with it.
On Friday morning, a different Israeli flag that Pepper placed outside the business was defaced.
Pepper says she notified police.
News 12 reached out to the Ramapo Police Department and has yet to hear back.
They did previously confirm they were looking into the first two situations.
