Surveillance footage captured an act of vandalism on Monday at the office of Rep. Dan Goldman (D-N.Y.) in the second such incident against the Jewish congressman since the Hamas terrorist attacks in southern Israel on Oct. 7.

The images show someone wearing a mask and black hoodie with a skateboard at their feet, spraying a red substance at the legislator’s office building in Brooklyn, N.Y. The individual held a handmade sign with smeared red letters stating “the blood of my family on your f***ing hands.”

Two women also appeared at the scene—one wearing a keffiyeh and the other holding a small cardboard sign with no writing.

Madison Andrus, Goldman’s communications director, said “targeting, harassing and threatening the young staff of a Jewish elected official at a time of record antisemitic violence is incredibly dangerous, deeply troubling and counterproductive.”

The previous incident at the representative’s office exhibited a similar theme with the phrase “blood on ur [sic] hands,” among others written on the sidewalk.
