Hate Crimes Unit Probes Series Of Brooklyn Swastikas

The New York City Police Department has launched an investigation after swastikas were found inside a Brooklyn building.

The swastikas were found scratched into the metal of an elevator Friday at 70 Ross Street in Williamsburg.

They have since been removed.

An elevator in the same building was also targeted last Wednesday.

The NYPD says its hate crimes unit is looking into both cases.

It comes just a few weeks after cars were set on fire and anti-Semitic graffiti was found spray painted in Midwood.

Swastikas were also found earlier this month painted on a sidewalk near the corner of Berry and 10th Streets in Williamsburg.

So far, no arrests have been made in any of the incidents.
