Police on Saturday arrested the man they say carried out six antisemitic attacks at four Riverdale Jewish centers and synagogues last weekend.
Jordan Brunette, 29, is facing multiple charges including burglary as a hate crime. Neither he nor his attorney could immediately be reached for comment Sunday.
Officers spotted Brunette around 3 a.m., riding a bicycle against traffic near West 246th Street and Delafield Avenue in Riverdale.
They stopped him to write a traffic ticket and recognized him from surveillance video taken outside the Jewish centers, authorities said.
The NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force spent a week probing the six antisemitic incidents targeting the Riverdale Jewish Center, Chabad of Riverside, Young Israel of Riverdale and the Adath Israel conservative synagogue.
Stones were hurled through windows of the four properties during six separate incidents spanning last Friday and Saturday.
