Florida man arrested for placing feces at synagogue, yelling ‘Jews must die’

Police have arrested a man who they say yelled antisemitic remarks at a rabbi and dumped a bag of human feces in front of a South Florida synagogue.

Hallandale Beach police arrests Jeffrey Carl Fleming on charges of felony stalking with a hate crime enhancement and littering human waste. He is being held without bond at the Broward County Jail. Details on his arrest are not released.

Capt. Pedro Abut says in a statement that Fleming, 39, is the man who was captured on cellphone video who went on a rant outside the Chabad of South Broward on Friday.

The man, barefoot and dressed in a white robe, left and returned a short time later, carrying a bag or pillowcase that contained human feces. He dumped the bag in front of the synagogue and yelled, “Jews should die,” according to a police report.

He also spat at a menorah near a sidewalk, according to the police.

Court records do not indicate if Fleming has an attorney.
