Spray-painted grafitti on exterior wall of tattoo parlor

NEWBURGH – The Casa DiDolore Tattoo Parlor at 784 Broadway in the City of Newburgh has been vandalized with broken windows and spray-painted graffiti and police are investigating it as a possible hate crime.

Storefront windows look like rocks or other objects were thrown at them causing them to shatter and the language “PB scum, f**k off” was painted on the exterior walls.

An Antifa sticker is affixed to one of the outside windows.

“PB” is an abbreviation for “Proud Boys,” the white supremacist group that supports former President Trump and Minuta was spotted in Washington wearing an Oath Keeper hat in the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.

Rob Minuta also challenged the state by reopening his shop before it was allowed to do so during the “pause” near the early days of the pandemic.

The shop was closed on Friday afternoon. No one answered the phone. When the store was contacted by phone late Saturday afternoon, he was not available for comment and did not return the call that evening.
