Four Jewish centers in Riverdale were targeted by one or more rock throwing assailants during the Jewish sabbath this weekend, and police are searching for a suspect in connection with the attacks.

The NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force is 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 attacks spanning Friday and Saturday, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call NYPD CrimeStoppers at 800-577-TIPS.
