|Rubin Ublies The Mezuzah Vandal|
Brooklyn, NY - A career criminal is being questioned by Police in connection with the burning of a dozen Mezuzahs in Williamsburg.
Ublies has been spotted by surveillance cameras lighting a match in the Clymer Street building where the most recent mezuzah was vandalized Tuesday.
Authorities say they used facial recognition to identify the suspect as Rubin Ublies. Police say he was spotted by surveillance cameras lighting a match in the Clymer Street building where the most recent mezuzah was vandalized Tuesday.
METRO.us is reporting that updates on his Facebook page state that he has no ill will towards Jews.
Messages written all in caps say that it is a “habit” of his to pose for cameras since he “sees” them everywhere.
He also claims he has “worked” with Jews for years, so why create “unnecessary” problems now?
Ubiles claims cops have targeted him simply because of his lengthy criminal history, and makes it a point to say that “fighting” is what he’s “known” for and that he doesn’t “like fires.”
Police say Ubiles is a member of the Latin Kings, who goes by the nickname “Booboo,” and currently has two protective orders against him from two different South Williamsburg women.
According to police, an elderly woman identified Ubiles as having burned mezuzas in her building last year.
The woman told police Ubiles cursed at her, saying, “x—- you Jews” and “I will rob you.”
