An arrest warrant has been issued for a man suspected of drawing anti-Semitic graffiti on the property of a Jewish institution in Brookline, authorities announced Wednesday.

The Brookline Police Department alerted the public Monday that a person had graffitied the Chabad Center on Harvard Street over the weekend. A symbol resembling a swastika was drawn over Russian writing. The offense was being investigated as a hate crime.

Video of the incident was captured. A man, clad in sunglasses and a hat, can be seen approaching the front door of the building with a cigarette in his mouth. He is believed to have left the property headed toward Commonwealth Avenue.

While the investigation is ongoing, at this time we believe that we know the identity of the subject captured on film, and a warrant for his arrest was issued, the Brookline Police Department said in a statement.

The Anti-Defamation League of New England offered a $1,000 reward for information leading to the identification and prosecution of the suspect.

We appreciate your patience as we move forward with this investigation, and wish you all a healthy and peaceful Passover and Easter season, police said.
