SALISBURY - Police say they are investigating a second menorah vandalism in less than a week, this time in Salisbury.

The menorah was set next to a Christmas tree on Carmen Avenue Green. Police say it was destroyed sometime Friday evening into Saturday.

Another menorah was found vandalized in Manhasset last week.

Nassau County detectives say they are investigating the vandalisms as a bias crime.


The Town of Hempstead will either repair or replace the damaged menorah.

Anyone with information about either menorah vandalism is asked to call Nassau Crime Stoppers.
