Police arrest Forest Hills man who allegedly scrawled swastika on Rego Park synagogue

A Forest Hills man was charged with first-degree aggravated harassment for allegedly drawing a swastika on the Rego Park Jewish Center in February.

Ramtin Rabenou, 41, was charged Thursday, police said.

On Feb. 17, he allegedly approached the center at 97-30 Queens Blvd., vandalized a sign with a marker and fled the location. Volunteers with Queens Borough Safety Patrol Shmira helped clean the graffiti.

Elected officials said there was “no room for this kind of hatred.”
