The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force and the 66th Precinct quickly made three arrests.
"I am very pleased that the NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force has made quick arrests of young punks trying to intimidate our community by scrawling messages of hate. It's appalling that these guys would come into our neighborhood simply to spread their anti-Semitic views," said Councilman David Greenfield.
Hate Crimes Task Force investigators interviewed the foreman at the site about the graffiti his employees found on the second floor that read “get out” and “you don’t belong." The cops also spoke with a yeshiva administrator about the bus graffiti, said Councilman Greenfield.
The administrator told the Task Force that there had been another incident that occurred inside the yeshiva that was captured by surveillance cameras -- a window had been forced open. After reviewing the footage the investigators were able to identify the three perpetrators, who were located and arrested that evening.
JP Updates identified the suspects as Randy Martinez, 18, Robert Diaz and Steven Sragoso, both 17.
