NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Police are investigating another act of hate in Brooklyn.

Authorities said someone wrote the words “God don’t like Jews” in red marker on the window of a car owned by a Jewish family.

The incident happened Monday night on Coleman Street and Avenue R in Marine Park.

“It’s very disturbing, especially in this neighborhood,” neighbor John Lonie told CBS 2’s John Slattery. “I’ve never seen anything like that. Usually you don’t see anything like that around here.”

Several elected officials denounced this latest act of hate vandalism.

There have been six anti-Semitic incidents this month in Brooklyn including the torching of three cars on Ocean Parkway in Midwood.

Of the six incidents in Brooklyn in November, the first was in Williamsburg — a swastika on a sidwalk and the word ‘Nazi’ spray-painted on a police saw horse.

The most dramatic was the anti-semitic arson on Ocean Parkway, where three cars torched and a 4th was damaged by fire. Swastikas and anti-semitic slurs were scrawled on the cars and nearby benches.
