Seeking suspects: White supremacist messages left in minority neighborhoods in NewRo, five other municipalities

The perpetrators of one of the white supremacist campaigns were caught on camera. Police are seeking information on their identity.

White nationalist and white supremacist messages have been left in neighborhoods in New Rochelle and five other Westchester municipalities that are home to or frequented by racial and ethnic minorities.

New Rochelle, Scarsdale, Sleepy Hollow, Tarrytown, White Plains and Yorktown “have encountered a number of incidents in which stickers carrying white nationalist and white supremacist messages and promoting groups that support these beliefs have been placed in public spaces,” said a statement from police officials in those localities and Westchester District Attorney Miriam Rocah. “We strongly condemn these actions to the extent that they are intended to intimidate and cause fear in our communities.”

The DA’s office and police departments around the county are working to investigate the incidents and any others targeting people because of their race, religion, gender, sexual orientation or political beliefs, said the statement.

The perpetrators of one of the acts were caught on camera and investigators are circulating images of them (pictured). Anyone with knowledge of the identity of these persons was asked to contact the Sleepy Hollow Police Department detective division at 914-631-0300.

“The district attorney’s office and law enforcement agencies are committed to keeping our communities safe while also respecting the First Amendment rights of all Americans,” said the statement.
