A Roxbury man was arraigned Wednesday on charges he vandalized the New England Holocaust Memorial in downtown Boston following an argument.

James E. Isaac, 21, was arraigned today in Boston Municipal Court on charges of malicious destruction of property over $250 and willful damage to a church, synagogue, or memorial.  Assistant District Attorney Anthony Rizzo requested that Isaac’s bail be set at $15,000 and that his bail be revoked in an unrelated assault and battery case currently pending in Chelsea District Court. Judge Sally Kelly imposed $750 bail and revoked Isaac’s open bail.

Rizzo told the court that a man later identified as Isaac became involved in a verbal altercation with a group of individuals on Union Street shortly before 2 a.m. after members of the group did not offer Isaac the time when asked.  A witness observed the man then pick up an object and throw it at the Holocaust Memorial, shattering one of the monument’s glass panels.  The witness contacted Boston Police and provided the offender’s physical description and direction of travel.

Isaac allegedly followed the individuals whom he had verbally confronted to the area of Congress Street, where he and a woman accompanying him were stopped by police. He was positively identified by a witness.

At the time of his arrest, Isaac was wearing a GPS monitoring device as a condition of his release in the Chelsea case, prosecutors said.

Isaac returns to Boston Municipal Court on July 18.
