An unhinged vandal defaced a Greek Orthodox church in Washington Heights, leaving crudely drawn phallic symbols and curse words on the house of worship’s front door, authorities said.
Cops on Thursday released surveillance images of the bearded scrawler in the hopes that someone recognizes him.
Congregants at the Spyridon Greek Orthodox Church on Wadsworth Ave. near W. 179th St. said the vandal struck about 5:30 a.m. on Sept. 23, leaving his obscene artwork and the words “dog s—” on four church doors.
The Rev. Nicholas Kazarian, the presiding priest at the 67-year-old church, declined to comment on the graffiti.
Police describe the suspect as a white man in his 30s and about 5-feet-8 with a full beard and black hair. He was wearing a black baseball cap, blue jeans, a white sweatshirt and black sneakers.
