The vandals who spray-painted swastikas on buildings in an Orthodox Jewish Brooklyn neighborhood were caught on a surveillance camera, it was revealed Sunday.

The images indicate that the vandals in Borough Park were older teenagers or young adults, who looked directly into the camera, The New York Jewish Week reported. None of the vandals has been identified.

The six swastikas were spray-painted early on June 15 on a synagogue and a mikvah, as well as on a school and several stores, including a kosher take-out restaurant.

The New York Police Department’s Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating the incident, according to reports.
