Vandals ruin Mezuzahs at 13 apartments

Mezuzahs were ripped from the entrances of 13 apartments inside a Coney Island building, cops said yesterday.

Officials, who labeled the incident a possible hate crime, said the attack came before noon inside the 23-story building at 3000 Ocean Parkway.

The NYPD had no suspects, and the investigation was continuing, officials said.

Mezuzahs are parchment scrolls with Torah verses that are typically attached to the doorframe of observant Jewish homes.
