Alleged members of ‘Antifa’ smashed glass storefronts and sprayed buildings with anti-police graffiti during a protest in Williamsburg over the weekend.
A small group within a greater protest left a wake of destruction in their path Saturday night, according to police and video.
The front windows of an Apple store and a real estate office were smashed and tagged as the trouble-makers threw items at the storefronts, a video posted on newsflare shows.
A man and woman smashed the glass windows of the Apple store, located at 247 Bedford Ave., and spray painted “FTP,” short for “F***k The Police” across the building, cops said. The NYPD responded to a 911 call of the vandalism at around 8:20 p.m.
Police said the two suspects fled the location and are wanted for criminal mischief.
A few hours later, at 11:48 p.m., a second 911 came for damage at a real estate office a number of blocks away.
The suspects broke the large glass storefront of the Compass real estate office located at 136 North 10th St. and spray painted a derogatory message across its front door, police said. The message read “Die Yuppy,” according to the New York Post.
Police didn’t have a description of the suspects in that incident.
A video of the protest and its aftermath also shows people spray painting “Murder Bezos” on the HSBC bank branch across from the Apple store as well as an attempt to damage a Whole Foods grocery store on Bedford Avenue.
