BROOKLYN - Police are investigating another anti-Semitic message found scrawled on a van in Kensington. Officials say they are trying to see if the recent graffiti is part of a string of incidents that have occurred recently in Borough Park.

A blue Dodge van was found on East 2nd Street with a swastika graffiti on it. Police say this makes the seventh swastika found in Brooklyn in a three-day period.

On Friday, six buildings, including a synagogue and a school, were defaced with swastikas in Borough Park.

Police say both incidents are still under investigation. Councilman David Greenfield (D-Brooklyn) says he is offering a $1,000 reward to anyone that provides information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the graffiti.
