Man Charged With Vandalizing Jewish Stores

A New Brunswick, N.J., man has been charged in the vandalism of several Jewish-owned shops in nearby Highland Park.

Richard M. Green has been charged with five counts of criminal mischief in the smashing the windows of five Jewish-owned businesses. Green, 52, was arrested on Wednesday.

Windows were smashed Tuesday night at five stores owned by Jewish merchants, according to the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office. The targeted businesses included kosher restaurants, Judaica shops and a hardware store.

The Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office is seeking to determine if Green is responsible for an incident in New Brunswick in which a brick was thrown through the window of the Rutgers University Hillel over the weekend.
