An employee at Moisha's Discount Supermarket in Brooklyn discovered two swastikas carved into the sidewalk in front of the Brooklyn store yesterday (Monday). Authorities are unsure who carried out the vandalism, but say that it occurred between 10:00 pm Sunday evening and 2:30 pm Monday afternoon, while the new concrete was still wet.
Police say they are investigating the act as a hate crime.
A spokesperson for the NYPD's Hate Crimes Task Force said they are looking for more information. Anyone who can help is requested to call them at 1-800-577-8477.
