NYPD Say Man Threatened to Burn Down Bagel Shop if Owner Did Not Remove Israeli Flags

The New York City Police Department said a man told employees at a kosher bagel store to “remove those Israeli flags and shut the business down or I’ll burn the building down” on November 10.

Officers said they were searching for a suspect in connection to the aggravated harassment, and offered a reward of up to $3,500 to the public for information.
