Just a few weeks after the Borough Park area was vandalized with anti-semetic graffiti, the perpetrators have struck again.

Police have a video of the vandals drawing on a car in front of the Hamodia office at 207 Foster Avenue in Borough Park. It is not yet clear whether these are the same two men from last week or copycats.

Assemblyman Dov Hikind has put up a a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the men in the video.

“We don’t know who is doing this yet, but we know why,” Hikind wrote on his blog. “Some individuals are sending a message. We hear them. And when they’re caught, and they will be, we’ll send a message, too. I urge anyone with any information to come forward.”

In the last few weeks, swastikas have been painted on a minivan, a deli gate, a supermarket, a synagogue and a variety of other places.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577.
