Police investigating possibly anti-Semitic attack at Williamsburg apartment building

Police are investigating a possible anti-Semitic attack inside a Williamsburg apartment building.

Authorities say 11 mezuzahs were burned Monday on separate doorposts at 85 Taylor St. The tiny torah scrolls are typically hung on the entranceways to Jewish homes.

Residents in the area say they're shaken up by the crimes, especially since Monday marked Holocaust Remembrance Day.

No suspects have been publicly identified.

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
