Mansion House Attack Update: Surveillance Video Stills Released

From a Brooklyn Eagle article, the NYPD have released photo stills from the surveillance video of the Mansion House vandalism/protest/attack, and are referring to it as a “hate crime criminal mischief incident.” If you seen this person, or have any information regarding this crime, you can contact the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), or visit the Crime Stoppers website.

The surveillance video or any clips from it have not been released yet, but — via local independent journalist Talia Jane on Twitter — the perpetrators put out their own little video of the attack, along with a missive claiming that it was in retaliation for the Brooklyn Museum’s response to another protest that occurred on May 31st of this year.

Unfortunately, Brooklyn Heights is no stranger to antisemitism. From just the BHB archives alone, the Brooklyn Heights Synagogue received a bomb threat in May, Adam Yauch Park was defaced/vandalized in 2016, swastikas were found in 2010, 2009, and let’s not forget Ivaylo Ivanov.
