Cedarhurst garage swastikas probed as bias incident, cops say

Two swastikas were found spray painted on pillars of a parking garage in Cedarhurst Monday, according to Nassau County police, who are investigating it as a bias incident.

The swastikas were discovered Monday morning in a Maple Avenue parking garage by the owner of the building. Police said they were painted sometime between March 25 at about 4:30 p.m. and Monday at 10:30 a.m.

Swastikas were found on a sidewalk in Cedarhurst earlier this month, police said. Carlos Rivera, 17, of Lawrence, was charged with aggravated harassment in connection with drawing swastikas with chalk outside of two homes on Oxford Road, police said.

According to police, it has not yet been determined whether the incidents are related.

Police are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 800-244-8477. All information will be kept confidential.
