Police: Suspect Was Angry At Jewish Ex, New Wife

NEW YORK (AP) A woman admitted shortly after her arrest late Monday that she spray-painted swastikas in Jewish neighborhoods in Brooklyn and Queens because she was angry about her Jewish ex-husband's new wife, police said.

The woman, Olga Abramovich, 49, of Brooklyn, was charged with criminal mischief and related crimes, police said.

Police said Abramovich admitted targeting about 20 sites, including several synagogues, because she was angry at her former husband for marrying a younger woman. They said she also marred two police cars because she was upset about receiving a summons.

The vandalism was first reported early Monday [October 18, 2004] at a medical facility in Brooklyn, where white spray-painted swastikas marked a door and a window.

During a search of the surrounding area, police found the same symbol on synagogues, Jewish schools, cars and a funeral home in southern sections of Brooklyn and Queens. One of the cars belonged to Abramovich's former husband.

Abramovich was in police custody Monday night and was unavailable for comment. She was being cooperative, police said

The spray paint, which she bought at a Long Island mall flea market, was found in the trunk of her vehicle, police said.

The swastika, a cross with its arms bent clockwise at right angles, was the emblem of the Nazi Party and the Third Reich.
