SYOSSET, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Police released surveillance photos of a suspect late Wednesday after anti-Semitic graffiti and other profanities were found spray-painted on a school in Syosset, Long Island late last month.
Just before 7 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 27, a school security officer discovered that the walls, doors and windows in the rear of Syosset High School, at 70 Southwoods Rd., had been spray-painted with anti-Semitic writings that included swastikas, Nassau County police said.
