Bias Graffiti Marks Train Stop

Bias Graffiti Marks Train Stop

The Hate Crimes Unit is investigating a possible bias incident after Transit workers discovered racial graffiti on a wall at a local subway station early Monday morning, police said.

A swastika, Star of David and the numbers 666 were found on a tiled 1 square-foot section at the top of the stairs just outside the lobby of the Noel Road Station in Broad Channel. A Transit worker told police that the markings appeared sometime between 6:30 a.m. and 9 a.m.

The graffiti was promptly removed. No arrests have been made, and the investigation is ongoing.

The New York City Police Department’s Hate Crimes Unit investigates incidents where race, sex, ethnicity and/or sexual orientation is involved.
