Police make arrest in alleged Yorktown hate crime
Yorktown police have arrested a teen after investigating a potential hate crime involving a swastika that was scrawled on the campaign poster of a Jewish town judge seeking re-election.
Justice Ilan Gilbert pulled the poster down after seeing the swastika drawn on his forehead. Gerard Giblin, 17, of Yorktown Heights, has been arrested in the incident, which has shocked the community.
Before serving as town judge, Gilbert was an administrative judge in the Supreme Court in The Bronx for 29 years, and a town justice for four.
