The NYPD has released surveillance images in the hope of identifying who scrawled profanities on the exterior doors of an upper Manhattan church.

The vandalism of Spyridon Greek Orthodox Church, at 124 Wadsworth Ave., was reported in the early morning hours of Sept. 23, police said. CCTV images depict a more adult version of "dog [excrement]" written multiple times in black marker across a four-door entrance.

The NYPD describes the suspect as a bearded man, possibly aged 30 and at 5'8" tall, wearing a black baseball cap and sneakers.
