The group of teens who threw a pipe through a synagogue window in Brooklyn are believed responsible to at least seven other alleged hate crimes, police said Wednesday.
The youths are between 12 and 14 years old, police officials said. In one incident, they allegedly knocked a hat off of a Jewish kid and shoved another.
The suspects broke a window at the Volkan shul on Franklin Ave. near Myrtle Ave. in Williamsburg at about 5:40 p.m. Saturday, cops said.
Surveillance video posted shows a group of seven teens walking up to the building and then tossing the pipe.
The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force is looking into the incident, though investigators believe the act may have been a simple case of criminal mischief, a police spokesman said.
The vandalism came a day after police busted James Polite, 26, a former City Hall intern, on charges he defaced the Union Temple in Prospect Heights with the words “Hitler” and “Die Jew rats, we are here!”
Cops are also looking to speak with two men after someone drew swastikas on Garden Place in Brooklyn Heights last week.
