Suspects in antisemitic threats targeted N.Y. synagogue, D.A. says

Two armed men arrested in connection with online threats against New York City's Jewish community had a Manhattan synagogue in their sights, a prosecutor said.

Two armed men arrested in connection with online threats against New York City's Jewish community had a Manhattan synagogue in their sights, a prosecutor said Sunday.

Matthew Mahrer, 22; and Christopher Brown, 21, were arraigned Sunday on 11 total charges, including criminal possession of a weapon and criminal possession of a firearm, according to the criminal complaints in the case.

Brown was also charged with making a criminal threat.

Attorneys representing the defendants separately did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Prosecutors said in their court filings that Brown used Twitter Thursday to make this alleged threat: "Gonna ask a Priest if I should become a husband or shoot up a synagogue and die."
