MIDWOOD - State Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) announced that a $25,000 reward is being offered for the arrest and conviction of whoever is responsible for the anti-Semitic vandalism spree in Midwood on Friday.

Police say a number of cars were torched while swastikas and "KKK" were spray painted on a number of benches along Ocean Parkway.

"The anti-Semitic sentiment that was expressed in this vicious attack is something that we must not remain silent for, we must respond to in the most strongest of terms," says state Assemblyman William Colton (D-Brooklyn).
