Police in New York City are investigating possible vandalism of a predominantly Jewish burial ground in Brooklyn, David Caplan reports for ABC News.
A few tombstones were overturned at Washington Cemetery in the borough’s Midwood neighborhood, an NYPD spokesman told ABC News last night, adding that it has yet to be determined if the tombstones were overturned due to vandalism or weather. The NYPD’s hate crimes division is investigating.
New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind tweeted that the Boro Park Shomrim “alerted me that stones @ Washington Cemetery are down. I’ve spoken w/ the NYPD who are investigating. I’ll be there in the am.”
