Jewish & LGBTQ communities, including ADL office, alleged targets of man arrested in Las Vegas

August 11, 2019

In this rising climate of anti-Semitism and hatred, and just days removed from the deadliest white supremacist attack in the last 50 years, we are tremendously grateful to law enforcement for their efforts to arrest and charge a Las Vegas man who was allegedly plotting to attack LGBTQ and Jewish community targets, including a synagogue and a regional ADL office.

Thankfully, this man's plans were thwarted before there was a more significant threat.
