A man was arrested Monday and charged after allegedly vandalizing the historic Sixth and I Synagogue in Washington, D.C., with anti-Semitic graffiti, according to a police report.

Luis Montsinos, 28, of no fixed address, is facing charges of defacing and destroying property, according to the police report. 

Police said Monstinos allegedly carved and drew antisemitic “gestures and symbols” at the synagogue, named for its cross-street address, damaging a wood door with a glass window and the concrete steps before fleeing the scene. 

Officers found and arrested him Monday afternoon, police said. The man is also facing charges for an outstanding bench warrant from November, according to the police report.
