Man charged with leaving antisemitic note on Manhattan assemblywoman’s office

An arrest was made Thursday in a disturbing act of vandalism targeting the offices of a New York State assemblymember.

Police say 53-year-old Karan Aggarwala is facing aggravated harassment and criminal mischief charges.

He's accused of splattering paint on the offices of Assemblywoman Rebecca Seawright on the Upper East Side on August 11.

A note was also left under the door with antisemetic and obscene language on it.

Seawright received support after the incident from city leaders including New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
