Police are looking for a man they say is responsible for drawing swastikas at five different locations in Marine Park earlier this week.
On April 25 at about 4:20 a.m. the suspect used a white marker to draw the swastikas around the Brooklyn neighborhood, according to authorities.
He allegedly drew the symbol on a garbage can cover and residential gate near Avenue S and Ryder Street; a traffic control box near Avenue S and East 38th Street; another garbage can cover near Avenue S and East 37th Street; and the front door of a residential building near East 35th Street and Avenue S.
The NYPD has released a surveillance image of the suspect and describe him as a white man between 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall, and was last seen wearing dark colored clothing and a dark colored backpack.
Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
