Police: Man sprayed anti-Semitic graffiti in Kiryas Joel buildings 

A Goshen man was charged on Thursday because state police said he was spraying anti-Semitic graffiti inside some of the multi-dwelling buildings in the mostly Hasidic village.

James Blazeski, 24, was charged with fourth-degree criminal mischief, a felony because police are considering it a hate crime.

Blazeski was arrested following an investigation into graffiti that was found in some of the buildings. State police say the graffiti was "hateful in nature" and "directed at the Jewish Community."

Blazeski was arraigned in the Village of Monroe Court and was sent to Orange County Jail on $2,500 cash bail and $7,500 bond.
