A suspect in an anti-Semitic arson attack was taken into custody yesterday and questioned about the burning of 12 mezuzahs at two Brooklyn apartment buildings this week — but cops haven’t charged him yet because he claims to have an alibi, the NY Post reported.
Police interrogated Ruben Ublies, 35, who has at least 40 priors, for the burning of the mezuzahs. Most of the burnings coincided with Holocaust Memorial Day.
“He’s given no denials, but he’s given some alibis and the detectives are looking into his alibis,” a law-enforcement source told the Post.
The Post reported that Ublies posted a proclamation of innocence on Facebook yesterday.
