Boro Park, Brooklyn, NY – A vandal scrawled two swastikas on the Brooklyn home of Miryam Marc, 77, Jewish woman during the Sabbath in just one of three hate crimes reported for the day, police and law enforcement sources said Sunday.

The 77-year-old victim was passing the entrance of her Ocean Parkway apartment near Avenue M around 4 p.m. Saturday when she spotted the pair of antisemitic markings written with red marker, police told the Post.

The six-story Midwood apartment building houses dozens of apartments. Police sources said the writing was on the woman’s door.

The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating the graffiti.
