Days after a series of swastikas were painted on buildings in Borough Park, more swastikas were found last night on East 2nd Street between Ditmas Avenue and Avenue F scrawled on a van and a light pole. According to the Daily News, the NYPD's Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating, but it is unclear if they are connected to Friday's incident.
"I join with millions of other New Yorkers in condemning such vulgar symbols of anti-Semitic hatred wherever they surface," Manhattan BP Scott Stringer says in a release. "We must never forget that our City was built on the concept of diversity, and every time a crime like this takes place, we must speak out affirmatively in support of our proud heritage." City Council Member David Greenfield said last week that there is a $1,000 reward for any information regarding the graffiti.
Police released video of two suspects in the earlier incidents.
