Army Centers Vandalized in New York City

Army Centers Vandalized in Bronx and Manhattan

New York Post

February 1, 2005 -- Two Army recruiting stations, one
in The Bronx and one in Manhattan, were hit by vandals
in unrelated attacks yesterday, a law-enforcement
source said. David Seigel, 19, of Litchfield, Conn., was arrested
and charged with vandalism for allegedly throwing a
burning rag at the recruitment post in Parkchester at
around 7:30 a.m. yesterday. The rag caused some charring and minor damage to the
building. Fire marshals are investigating, and Seigel could face
additional charges.

Five hours later, an employee of an Army recruiting
station in the Flatiron section of Manhattan noticed
that the front door had been cracked by a rock. Someone also had used red paint to scrawl an anarchist
symbol and an expletive that mentioned the war in
Iraq, authorities said. Police have no suspects in the afternoon attack. The
Joint Terrorism Task Force is also investigating the
incidents, Channel 2 News reported. The source said that there was no indication that the
two attacks were connected.
