NYPD investigate multiple antisemitic incidents: rock thrown at Jewish man’s car, “huge” swastika graffiti

The NYPD are investigating a hate crime after a youth threw a rock through a Jewish man’s car window as it was in motion.

The incident took place on the afternoon of June 26. The youth throwing the rock also shouted antisemitic abuse and fled.

This incident took place as he departed the Utica Avenue subway station in near Crown Heights. The second is a series of “huge” swastikas spray painted on the 181st Street station in Washington Heights.
