Orthodox Brooklyn Neighborhood Hit With Swastikas

JTA — A vandal drew swastikas on public and private property in a Brooklyn neighborhood.

The swastikas were drawn in white marker early Monday morning, the New York Post reported on Wednesday.

They were found on garbage can lids, a residential gate, a traffic control box, and the door of a building in Marine Park, an Orthodox Jewish neighborhood in Brooklyn.

The vandal, a white male wearing dark clothing, was caught on surveillance video at about 4 a.m. on Monday.
