Police ask for help catching Marine Park swastika painter

Cops are still searching for the bigoted weasel who scribbled swastikas all over Marine Park during the holy Jewish holiday of Passover last year on April 25.

Officials have released a more detailed photo of the suspect and are asking for the public’s help to catch him, according to the police department.

The jerk allegedly drew the anti-Semitic graffiti all along Avenue S with a white marker in the middle of the night, including on a home’s front door near E. 35th Street, a garbage can near E. 37th Street, a residential gate near Ryder Street, and a utility box near E. 38th Street, police said.

The 44-year-old suspect stands between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-9, officials said.

Police ask anyone with information about crime to call (800) 577–8477, submit tips at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or text 274637 followed by TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
