After scrawling the Nazi symbols at around 4:15 p.m.the suspect fled the scene on foot in an unknown direction and there were no injuries reported as a result of the incident, police said.

The NYPD released surveillance photos of the suspect on June 27 and described him as having a light complexion and a mustache. He was last seen wearing eyeglasses, a maroon hooded sweatshirt, black jeans, dark sneakers and a black backpack.

The Hate Crimes Task Force’s investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS.
