Police are searching for two people caught on camera spray-painting hateful speech outside a yeshiva in Brooklyn.
Police say the incident happened last Sunday when the suspects spray-painted a swastika outside a high school in Sunset Park. The two also used graffiti to write the names Rico and Ace.
One of the suspects was last seen wearing a blue jacket, blue jeans and a backpack.
The other suspect had a full beard and was last seen wearing a black face mask, a button-down jacket and a satchel bag.
Mayor Bill de Blasio took to Twitter to condemn the act, saying: "Despicable. This kind of hatred has no home in our city. To the Mesilas Bias Yaakov community: your city stands with you. We denounce this vile act of anti-Semitism with one voice."
Police say the Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating the situation.
No arrests have been made.
Anyone with information is urged to contact the NYPD Hate Crime Unit.
