The Star of David placed on Parisian buildings last week appears to be the work of an illegal couple from Moldova. The couple was arrested on Friday. According to Europe 1 radio station, they said they acted “on behalf of someone from Russia.” This week, the Star of David was once again placed on Parisian homes, but the investigation is still ongoing.

The Moldovans were arrested on October 27 on charges of drawing 15 Stars of David using blue ink and stencils on buildings in the 10th arrondissement of Paris. A local resident saw them working from a window on the night of October 26 to 27, which led to their arrest.
“I saw them acting a little strange,” the witness told BFMTV. “They looked around and then I saw a young woman pulling out some kind of paper. Because it was from a distance, I didn’t see exactly what it was, but I saw that she was putting something on the wall,” he explained to the French channel.
“Shameful, cowardly and intolerable”
And then he saw what she did. “I drew the Star of David with chalk.” The citizen stated that he found this matter “shameful, cowardly and intolerable.” After taking some photos, he called the police, who “intervened very quickly.”
The Moldovan couple then stated that “she committed this crime on behalf of a third party.” Europe 1 learned that they were instructed to do this by “someone in Russia.”
The perpetrators were found to be in France illegally and have now been transferred to a detention center awaiting deportation to Moldova.
Tuesday morning was another rude awakening for many Parisians when they discovered that dozens of Stars of David had been placed on homes and stores in various areas. According to a source close to the investigation, the search is underway for another couple, who have not been identified at this stage. The Public Prosecution Office in Seine-Saint-Denis opened two investigations.
