Shomrim Parkway Nabs Suspect in Violent Graffiti Case


Volunteers from the Shomrim Parkway organization caught a youth of Arab extraction and turned him over to police following two calls regarding graffiti against Jewish targets in the Parkway section of Brooklyn, New York this week. Shomrim Parkway was called to the Ateret Shim'on Yeshiva after students discovered serious anti-Semitic graffiti, including the words, "Kill the Jews" on the institution's gates and walls.

While checking to make sure there was no danger and calming the young students, the second call was received, describing graffiti on Jewish-owned homes and cars parked next to them on an adjoining street. When they arrived on the scene, they saw someone fleeing, gave chase and trapped him.

An hour before the Parkway incidents, anti-Semitic graffiti was spray-painted on a community office in Boro Park. Police are investigating to see if there is a connection.
