Man Writes 'Die Yuppies,' Draws Swastika In Cement at Construction Site (NYPD)

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.
