The NYPD Intelligence Division & Counter-Terrorism Bureau are seeking to speak with a woman that was caught on surveillance video taking pictures of a Jewish school in borough park.

The incident took place last week on Thursday afternoon at approximately 2:30 p.m. The woman, dressed like a Muslim, showed up at the Yeshiva Imeri Yosef Spinka school located at 15th avenue and 58th street. She proceeded to take photos and look around all sides of the building as if  to spy and stake out the place.

The school’s surveillance video was handed over to the NYPD.

Investigators from the Intelligence Division are now reviewing the video, NYPD officials told JP.

“If you see something suspicious you need to report it immediately to 911,” Councilman David Greenfield said upon learning about this incident.

“Better safe than sorry,” he continued,”I’m pleased that the NYPD Intelligence Division is actively investigating this situation.”
