Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY - A man driving a motorcycle through the heart of Williamsburg's Orthodox Jewish community tossed multiple fliers filled with swastikas and anti-Semitic drawings on the street, the NYPD said.

 

The biker, who was wearing a black helmet at the time, was spotted dropping the fliers as he drove near the intersection of Lee Avenue and Rodney Street on Thursday around 9:30 p.m., police said.

 

It featured cartoons with multiple anti-Semitic statements, as well a reference to the "Holocaust myth," according to an image circulating among members of the Orthodox community Friday morning and later posted on Twitter, alongside a request to call Williamsburg's Shomrim Security Patrol with any information.
