NYPD Searching for Man who Spray Painted Swastikas on Cars

Police are looking for a vandal who sprayed-painted several parked cars with antisemitic graffiti on the Upper East Side last month, cops said Thursday. 

The suspect began his spree at East 69th Street and Fifth Avenue between 4:30 and 5:30 a.m. Feb. 16th – spanning several blocks and ultimately defacing seven privately owned cars, police said. 

Footage released Thursday morning shows him spraying something on a white SUV before walking off.

He was still on the loose Thursday, and the NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating.

Police say he has short dark hair and a thin build, last seen wearing a green hooded snorkel jacket, a brown hooded sweatshirt and black jeans.
