Police Investigate Anti-Semitic Message Written On Williamsburg Street

Police are investigating anti-Semitic graffiti found in a heavily Hasidic neighborhood of Brooklyn.

Authorities said the graphic message was found written in chalk on Berry Street in Williamsburg Tuesday morning.

It's the latest in a string of bias incidents directed at the Brooklyn Jewish community but that doesn't make it any less shocking to some.

"They're all very upset also," said one person. "They've heard about it, I'm sure, in the other areas. But when it comes to your neighborhood, you know, it's totally something different. I've heard about it but just to see it, it really gets me sick."

The NYPD's Hate Crimes Task Force is looking into the incident.
