NJ Synagogue Attack Suspect Charged with 3rd Plot
Authorities in northern New Jersey say a teenager charged in the firebombings of two synagogues plotted a similar attack on a Jewish community center.
Bergen County’s prosecutor says investigators found multiple Molotov cocktails this week in a wooded area near the Jewish Community Center of Paramus. They say they’ve connected the bombs and a bike found in the same area to suspect Anthony Graziano.
The 19-year-old Graziano was charged this week with firebomb attacks on synagogues in Paramus and Rutherford this month.
He’s now charged with aggravated arson and bias intimidation for the planned attack on the community center. If convicted on all charges, he could face up to 95 years in prison.
