Street Beef Leads to Swastikas In R’wood

A Ridgewood resident was arrested by police last Tuesday, Aug. 7, for allegedly etching swastikas onto the front door of a neighbor’s home over an alleged dispute, it was reported. Hector and Urmilla Rodriguez discovered the suspect and an unidentified accomplice scrawling the symbol of hate on the entryway to their residence on Stockholm Street between Woodward and Onderdonk avenues at around 6 a.m. last Tuesday. Members of the 104th Precinct responded to the scene and, following questioning, arrested the suspected vandal on charges of criminal mischief. Police determined that the act of vandalism was not the result of bias but rather retaliation of a previous dispute. Hector Rodriguez told the Times Newsweekly that the incident left him and other neighbors unnerved.
