Blumenthal said Crimo stood out by wearing all black, including gloves.

“He said his name was Bobby and he lives in the area. I watched him all the time,” he shared.

Despite his suspicions, Blumenthal said he did not inform the authorities because Crimo “didn’t cause a riot or anything like that.”< br />
The police said they had no clear evidence of anti-Semitic or racist overtones. Investigators are studying videos posted by Krimo on social networks that contain images of violence.
