The New York Police Department has released a video of a man plastering a swastika on the wall of a subway station elevator on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.

Police say the man used the MTA service advisory flyers to create the swastika and post it on an elevator at the 96th Street station.


The suspect, who was caught on camera carrying out the vandalism on New Year’s Eve, is now wanted for aggravated harassment, according to CBS News.

Police waited to release the surveillance video, but are doing so now, hoping someone will recognize the perpetrator.

Anyone with information about the incident is being asked to call the NYPD Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-8477 or in Spanish, 1-888-577-4782. Tips can be sent to the NYPDTips Twitter account or submitted online at
