A New Mexico high school student was suspended for sending hundreds of anti-Semitic text messages to a Jewish classmate.

The sender reportedly confessed and was suspended from Eldorado High School in Albuquerque until January.

More than 1,700 anti-Semitic text messages were sent to his 14-year-old classmate over a period of several weeks, KRQE News in Albuquerque reported May 25. Some 500 of the messages sent back to back last week read “kill Jews, heil Hitler.”

Police investigating the incident identified it as a hate crime, according to the news channel.
