Posted: Updated:
WILLIAMSBURG -

A group of people was caught on camera in Williamsburg damaging a synagogue during a holiday.

It happened in the middle of the high holiday prayers around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday at a synagogue on Throop Street at the corner of Bartlett Street.

Police say three people were caught on camera running down the street when one picks up what appears to be a milk crate as another picks up what appears to be a metal box, both throwing the objects at the window of the synagogue. The third person appeared to serve as a lookout for the trio, who then sped off on foot.

The synagogue suffered some damage, as the glass of the window shattered.

No one was hurt.

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
