Police say they have no updates yet on two threatening incidents that took place this month in Fort Greene Park.
A rope with a noose was found hanging from a tree in Fort Greene Park mid-day on Monday, as first reported by DNAInfo and other outlets. The noose was reportedly discovered by a park visitor.
The NYPD told us today that the noose was found hanging from a tree within the park near Elliott Place and Dekalb Avenue.
Almost two weeks earlier, on October 12th, anti-Semitic graffiti was discovered on a tree stump not far from where the noose was found, say police. The Daily News reports that the graffiti read, “They should have gotten rid of you when they had the chance. Hitler.”
According to the NYPD, the investigation into both incidents, classified as aggravated harassment, is ongoing.
