Hostile Mixed Race Couple In White Van Without License Plates Casing 90035 Shuls

A white van without license plates has been seen casing at least two shuls in 90035 and also it was spotted driving around a yeshiva. This has all happened in the past three weeks.

The van is driven by a black man and a latino woman. They often have their kid in the van with them.

The van will circle around a shul and the woman takes photos with her white iPhone. When told to move on, the black man yells, “My wife likes photography.”

The van has no license plates.

It was first seen, according to what I have heard, on Shuvuot and then again last Sabbath. A police report was filed.

The couple appear to be in their early 30s and seem aggressive and hostile. They remind me of the San Bernardino terrorists. Their identity is unknown.

Most major shuls in 90035 have armed security guards on Shabbos.
