NYPD Searching for Man Seen Writing Antisemitic Remarks On Subway Car


NYPD are investigating an act of antisemitism where a man was recorded making graffiti onboard the J train heading toward Williamsburg. On Tuesday, May 19 at around 8:30 a.m., an unidentified man was drawing graffiti inside a southbound J train at the Bowery Street Station. The train was heading to Williamsburg. The man was wearing a mask and wrote, “Fuck the Jews” and “Go to hell Donald Trump.” He also drew a bunch of arrows pointing at the statements. He then fled to parts unknown. The graffiti was soon taken off. The incident is being investigated by NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force.

The suspect is a 6’0” tall man, weighing about 180 pounds. According to the cops, he was last seen wearing dark-colored clothing.

“Every New Yorker should be able to ride the system free of harassment,” the MTA said in a statement to Bkyner. “The MTA has no tolerance for bias attacks, which is why in January we launched an anti-hate crimes campaign to encourage victims and witnesses to report these crimes, and to encourage tolerance that should minimize such unacceptable conduct in the first place.”

Anyone with information in regard to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
