NYPD Searching for Suspect in Antisemitic Hate Crime of Jewish Seminary

A racist scrawled a swastika on a West Village Jewish seminary in what police are investigating as a hate crime, authorities said.

An as-yet-unidentified man drew the antisemitic graffito on the wall of Hebrew Union College at West Fourth Street near Mercer Street on Aug. 14, NYPD officials said. Jewish watchdog organization StopAntisemitism shared an image of the suspect on Twitter.

The man, after using blue chalk to sketch out the hateful symbol, then ran off toward Broadway about 4:45 p.m., police said.

Surveillance footage shows the man, who has short, dark hair and a slim build. He was last seen wearing a white tank top and sporting a dark backpack.
