WHAT: Unknown vandals torched three cars and scrawled Nazi swastikas in a predominantly Jewish neighborhood in Brooklyn before dawn on Friday.

HOW: On Ocean Parkway, three parked cars — a BMW, a Lexus and a Jaguar — were set ablaze. “KKK” was spray-painted on a van and anti-Semitic messages were scrawled on a sidewalk. Brooklyn District Attorney Charles Hynes said dozens of empty beer bottles were found at the scene. He said they would be tested for clues.

WHAT’S BEING DONE: About 100 people marched through Brooklyn on Sunday to protest against the vandals. They were led by New York state Sen. Eric Adams, state Assemblyman Dov Hikind, Rabbi Chaim Gruber, New York City Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, civil rights lawyer Norman Siegel and other community leaders.
