A Jewish man from Manhattan was arrested for making anti-Semitic phone calls to his mother and other women, and is suspected of painting anti-Semitic graffiti in Brooklyn.

David Haddad, 56, was arrested Sunday for making the calls, including one on Dec. 11 to his mother in which he said that “All Jews should die and go to hell.”

Haddad also is suspected of paining swastikas on apartment doors earlier this month, as well as a graffiti attack in the Midwood neighborhood over the weekend.

He reportedly knew nearly all of the victims, some of whom were his relatives, according to The New York Times. He reportedly was in a business dispute with his family, which may be the reason for the attacks.

Haddad, who police say is Jewish, was charged with aggravated harassment as a hate crime.
