New York police are on alert after suspicious activity was detected outside of two separate synagogues in Brooklyn over the weekend.

Unknown men took videos in front of two synagogues on Ocean Parkway, in the Borough Park neighborhood, on Saturday afternoon.

At the Safra Synagogue, they were driven off by a security guard, according to the New York Daily News. But the men later turned up at Beth Torah, a large Sephardic synagogue on the same block. One man attempted to enter either one or both synagogues, according to media reports, but was turned away.

The men drove away in a car with an expired Delaware license plate, the New York Daily News reported.

The New York Police Department has stepped up patrols at synagogues and Jewish institutions, according to local media.
