Man Wanted in Connection with Upper East Side Hate Crimes

Suspect via NYPD

After three hateful stickers were found outside businesses in close proximity, the NYPD is searching for an older man as a person of interest.

The 19th Precinct details three events where businesses along Madison Avenue near 77th Street in Manhattan found a sticker on their window that depicted various anti-Semitic, anti-Black, and anti-gay statements and symbols. Two incidents took place in October and one more recently on December 2nd, but all three businesses targeted were within one block of each other. The acts are being investigated as "aggravated harassment as a hate crime".

Wanted as a person of interest, the man seen in video obtained by the NYPD is described as a White male in his 60s to 70s, bald, and was wearing a light-colored shirt tucked into dark pants. Hanging from his shirt are what may be reading glasses, and he was not seen carrying any bag where he could have concealed the stickers, so they may be carried in a pocket.

If you recognize the man seen in security video footage, or if you have seen a similar sticker, contact NYPD CrimeStoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (1-800-577-8477), via text at CRIMES (274637), or via online form.
