A woman faces a hate crime charge after she allegedly crashed her car through the gate of a Tarzana synagogue.
Tikvah Mottahdeh, 54, rammed her vehicle into the gates of ERETZ Synagogue & Cultural Center, located in the 6100 block of Wilbur Avenue, early Thursday morning, according to Los Angeles Police Department spokesperson Officer Moran.
Mottahdeh was arrested at around 2:10 a.m. and faces a charge of hate crime vandalism at a house of worship, Moran said.
Footage from the scene showed the broken gate lying in the synagogue’s driveway.
It is unknown if the synagogue structure sustained any damage.
