Several black teens were caught on camera vandalizing a Chabad Lubavitch center in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, chabad.info reported.

The vandalism was discovered when the center’s rabbi, Gavriel Avichzer, arrived at the Chabad Center for Israelis on Wednesday morning.

Avichzer noticed that the sign at the entrance to the synagogue was broken and lying on the floor.

Avichzer said that this was not the first time black teens vandalized the center. He said that when the teens leave school, they sometimes throw snowballs or stones at the center.

Surveillance cameras recorded the incident that occurred on Tuesday evening. On the video, a group of black teens were seen approaching the center, when one of them took a baseball bat and hit the sign, until it broke and fell to the floor.

The police were notified, but so far, no arrests have been made.
