NYPD is searching for this individual, suspected of perpetrating an antisemitic attack on a Brooklyn yoga studio.

NYPD’s 61st precinct police officers have arrested a neo-Nazi thug who ripped a mezuzah from the doorpost and vandalized a yoga studio this week in Brooklyn’s Manhattan Beach neighborhood.

Bronx resident William Klare, 40, was arrested Friday afternoon on multiple charges in connection with last Tuesday’s antisemitic attack.


The tattooed skinhead was seen on security photos released by police as he scrawled a swastika on a blackboard in the studio, adding next to it, “Nazi punk f—k off” in capital letters.

“Prayer documents” were removed by Klare at the Yoga Hell studio on East 17th Street, and “religious items were damaged,” during the July 18 incident, police alleged in their charges.

Studio owner Katia Riva said she does not intend to cancel classes at the studio over the incident.
