Four Suspected in Swastika Graffiti Incident
At least four perps were involved in the Sunday graffiti spree that left four Midtown storefronts vandalized with swastikas, cops say.
Now, police want your help finding them: Cops say that four suspects (pictured above)are responsible for what's now the most recent incident in the rash of anti-Semitic hate crimes that have taken place in the city since October -- such as an attack on Orthodox Jews in Midwood, graffiti in Brooklyn, and the destruction of cars.
The suspects hit 1071, 1073, 1077, and 1079 Avenue of the Americas -- near Bryant Park -- around 4:30 p.m, including Penguin Clothing Store and Books Kinokuniya. Cops are on the lookout for the alleged crims, described as two Asian females and two Asian males.
If you think you know who did it, call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or submit tips at nypdcrimestoppers.com or text info to 274637 (CRIMES), entering TIP577.
