Swastika left outside Crown Heights home

Police are looking for a suspect who spray painted a swastika outside a 78-year-old Jewish man's home in Crown Heights. 



It happened Saturday around 6 p.m. on Montgomery Street.



They say the suspect was caught on surveillance video leaving the swastika on the sidewalk in the mainly Jewish neighborhood.



Mayor Bill de Blasio says it's the second swastika left in front of a building in just a week. He says a swastika was also painted in front of a school in Manhattan. 



The mayor will meet with members of faith to discuss the matter. 



Police say they are investigating the incident as a possible hate crime.
