The NYPD identified the suspect as 39-year-old Sharee Jones, a Brooklyn resident who is now facing charges of reckless endangerment and hate crime.
Based on the initial police investigation, Jones who was wearing an all-black dress suddenly arrived in the area, started her anti-semitism rant, and started a fire from a gasoline container that she was holding.
The suspect hurriedly escaped after the shocking and bizarre incident.
But after three days of hiding, the NYPD finally arrested the suspect.
