STATEMENT: Mayor Garcetti on today's arrest in connection with threats against the Jewish Community

“The acts of hate and antisemitism that have threatened our Jewish community in recent weeks are an attack on all of us — and they undermine our most fundamental American values. On behalf of our entire city, I thank our federal law enforcement partners for their commitment and hard work to arrest a suspect today in connection with these unconscionable acts.

“Los Angeles has always been a city of kind, compassionate people who stand together, and speak up for one another in the face injustice. I am committed to protecting those values, and we will not stop working until we know every Angeleno can feel safe.” — Mayor Eric Garcetti
