Cops are looking for the bigot who vandalized four Brooklyn synagogues and broke into one over the weekend.

It was reported to police that between 12:20 and 1:30 am on Dec. 26, an unknown man used a marker to make graffiti on four different Midwood synagogues: Young Israel of Midwood (1694 Ocean Avenue), Kahal Darkei Noam, Tefila LeMoshe D`Boston (2822 Avenue J), Khal Toras Chaim D’Flatbush (2201 Avenue L) and Knesses Bais Avigdor (1720 Avenue J).

The suspect scribbled derogatory phrases on the buildings, including “pedophiles,” “thieves pedophiles” and “anti-acculturation.”

Cops say the perp took it a step further at Knesses Bais Avigdor, where he broke in and tagged property inside the building. The suspect also damaged two cabinets and took $20 before fleeing the scene, according to the NYPD, whose Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating the crime spree.

Authorities released photos of the suspects taken from two of the synagogues, as well as a video from Kahal Darkei Noam, Tefila LeMoshe D`Boston.

The suspect is described as a man with a light complexion and a medium build, with a black mustache and facial hair. He was last seen wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt, a black jacket, blue jeans and black sneakers.

Anyone with information regarding these incidents are asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or on Twitter @NYPDTips. All calls are strictly confidential.
