NYPD: Anti-Semitic graffiti, fire used to vandalize Brooklyn homes
Four vandals who spray-painted anti-Semitic graffiti on a Brooklyn home were caught on camera shooting fireballs at trees and cars last week, police said.
The four unidentified suspects painted the offensive graffiti on an Exeter Street property in Manhattan Beach around 12:30 a.m. last Saturday, according to the NYPD.
Police did not say what the anti-Semitic graffiti said or depicted. The incident occurred the same day a former NYPD officer sprayed more than 20 anti-Semitic messages throughout Borough Park in Brooklyn, according to authorities.
Surveillance footage provided by police shows the vandals walking down a street in the area while one suspect uses what appears to be a spray can and lighter to shoot flames at a tree, car and utility box.
It was not clear if the fire damaged any property.
Anyone with information about the suspects is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), submit a tip online or text 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577.
