A Roosevelt man was arrested Monday after police said he scrawled “racially bias” graffiti on the wall of a supermarket in his neighborhood.

Serge Delaleu, 43, was charged with third-degree and fourth-degree criminal mischief, along with two counts of making graffiti and was ordered held on $7,500 cash bail or $15,000 bond at his arraignment Tuesday.

Investigators said Delaleu is accused of writing “a racially bias statement” on the side of the Western Beef supermarket on Nassau Road in Roosevelt early Saturday morning. Police said assistance from the public helped them identify Delaleu as a suspect.

A similar statement was found written on the same supermarket two days later, but police said Delaleu has not been charged in connection with that incident. Detectives are still searching for a suspect in that incident, which they say also left “racially bias” graffiti on the supermarket’s exterior wall.

Anyone with information is urged to call Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS.
