New York(CNN)The New York Police Department will increase its presence in several Brooklyn neighborhoods after at least six possible anti-Semitic incidents this week, Mayor Bill de Blasio tweeted Friday morning.
More police will be seen in Borough Park, Crown Heights and Williamsburg, de Blasio said. Police will increase visits to houses of worship and “other critical areas in the community,” the mayor said.
“Anyone who terrorizes our Jewish community WILL face justice,” de Blasio said. “Anti-Semitism is an attack on the values of our city — and we will confront it head-on.”
