Protestors on the Lower East Side Vandalize NYPD Vans
Citywide protests are again turning violent.
Protestors on the Lower East Side Saturday night were caught on video vandalizing three NYPD vans, slashing tires, spray-painting graffiti, and smashing windows, police said yesterday.
The footage – released by cops – shows hooligans damaging the vehicles stationed on Essex Street, just north of Delancey. One man is seen using his sign to break the windows of one van, while others scribble “FTP” (fuck the police) nearby.
Anyone with information about the vandalism is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS. All calls are kept confidential.
