NEW YORK - A man who wrote graffiti on a vehicle in Manhattan is being sought by police to face hate crime charges.
The NYPD says that it happened at about 4:15 p.m. on Thursday, February 2, 2023.
The man approached a mobile Mitzvah Tank Synagogue, which was parked at 575 Broadway, and graffitied the word "PALESTINE" on the exterior of the synagogue vehicle.
He then took off into the subway system. The NYPD's Hate Crime Task Force is investigating.
Anyone with information is asked to call the New York City Police Department's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
The NYPD released images of the vehicle and the suspect.
Mitzvah tanks have been on the streets of Manhattan since 1974. They are used by Orthodox Jews to use as a portable outreach center on the streets of the city.
