New York Republican State Committee Chairman Ed Cox has just informed Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) that an anonymous donor has offered an additional $25,000 to the existing reward money being offered in connection with last Friday’s arson and hate crime on Ocean Parkway which saw several vehicles torched and burned in the Midwood section of Brooklyn. Graffiti, including swastikas and the letters KKK and SS, was found sprayed on and around the cars and nearby benches.

“I am so grateful to the NYPD who have been working around the clock to solve this hate crime,” remarked Hikind. “They have spared no effort in attempting to put the community at ease by finding the perpetrator(s) responsible for this heinous crime and bringing them to justice. I am also incredibly thankful to Mr. Cox and his donor for their support. I am hopeful we will have a break in the case soon.”
Anyone with information is urged to call the NYPD tip hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477). All calls will be kept confidential.
