The Bangor Daily News reports that the Maine Human Rights Commission found Monday that a Lewiston, Maine, man was harassed out of his home by another tenant last spring because he is Jewish.

Bruce Brown of Lewiston said a tenant in the apartment building he lived in drove him out of his home by painting swastikas on his car, purposely setting off fire alarms “hundreds of times,” shutting off heat and water to the apartments “at least 20 times” and by throwing loud parties — all because of Brown’s religion.

Members of the Maine Human Rights Commission voted unanimously that Joshua Boucher of Saco did create a hostile environment that forced Brown to leave.
