Man Writes 'Die Yuppies,' Draws Swastika In Cement at Construction Site
The NYPD is looking for a man they say hopped a fence to etch “Die Yuppies” and draw a swastika in a Brooklyn sidewalk.
Video footage shows the vandal looking over his shoulder before stepping over a waist-high fence to scrawl the hateful message in wet cement about 1:45 a.m. Friday, police said.
He and another person take off once he is done defacing the property.
The message was discovered on the construction site on Myrtle Avenue between Wilson and Stanhope streets in Bushwick about 10 a.m., a source said.
The suspect is described as a white man with long hair, standing about 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighing about 150 pounds.
He was last seen wearing a dark leather jacket.
The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating the vandalism, the source said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS. All calls are confidential.
