The NYPD Hate Crime Task Force is searching for a pair of men who drew swastikas and other profanities on a Greenpoint restaurant last month.
The men were captured on surveillance video scribbling with a marker on the outside wall of Acapulco Restaurant & Deli, a Mexican restaurant located at 1116 Manhattan Ave, on Dec. 22 at 9:20 a.m., police said.
The swastika graffiti comes at a time of increased attacks and discriminatory incidents against Jewish New Yorkers.
Anyone with information in regard to the identity of the individuals is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, or on Twitter @NYPDTips.
