NEW YORK — The New York Police Department is investigating a report of possible vandalism at a predominantly Jewish cemetery.
An NYPD spokesman says Sunday the department's hate crimes division has been notified of headstones found toppled over at Washington Cemetery in Brooklyn.
Assemblyman Dov Hikind tweeted photos Saturday night showing some headstones on the ground. The Democrat says he'll go to the cemetery Sunday to see them.
The Jewish politician said that he was alerted to the vandalism by the Boro Park Shomrim, a registered non-profit community policing organization.
There has been a rash of vandalism at Jewish cemeteries and 122 bomb threats called in to Jewish organizations in three dozen states since early January.
