Cops are still searching for the bigoted weasel who scribbled swastikas all over Marine Park during the holy Jewish holiday of Passover last year on April 25.

Officials have released a more detailed photo of the suspect and are asking for the public’s help to catch him, according to the police department.

The jerk allegedly drew the anti-Semitic graffiti all along Avenue S with a white marker in the middle of the night, including on a home’s front door near E. 35th Street, a garbage can near E. 37th Street, a residential gate near Ryder Street, and a utility box near E. 38th Street, police said.

The 44-year-old suspect stands between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-9, officials said.

Police ask anyone with information about crime to call (800) 577–8477, submit tips at, or text 274637 followed by TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.
