The 28-year-old trans child of Connecticut's deputy associate attorney general was arrested on Thursday over a felony antisemitic hate crime incident in Newtown. 

Sarah Stofko, who goes by the alias “Isaac,” was arrested on Dec. 7 by the Newtown Police Department following an investigation into the vandalism of an Israeli flag that had been cut down. According to the police report, a witness reported the incident to law enforcement and police were able to obtain a vehicle description and registration belonging to Stofko. The report lists Stofko’s sex as “m” though she is an adult female.

Stofko, an alumna of Hunter College in New York City, is facing charges of third-degree intimidation based on bigotry or bias, a felony, and third-degree criminal mischief. Stofko is the child of Deputy Associate Attorney General Carolyn Signorelli, a Democrat and liberal activist. Stofko’s arrest record shows an address belonging to her mother, confirming she was living with the high-level state attorney in their 2,000-square-foot house in the state’s wealthiest county when she allegedly committed the hate crime.

Signorelli works closely in the state’s civil rights department with Connecticut Attorney General William Tong, who was previously a Democrat congressman. She was involved in anti-Donald Trump activism previously and her social media posts show activist content around transgender and queer ideology. She serves on the Board of Ethics for the Town of Newton and is a House of Delegates member for the Connecticut Bar Association. (Both organizations were reached for comment.)

“Our police department has no tolerance for any crimes that have the potential to create fear and anxiety amongst members of our community,” Lt. Scott Smith said in a press release. “Our patrol officers worked diligently to identify and arrest this individual and will continue to fulfill our mission statement by working together with the community to seek justice for all. We are grateful to members of the community for assisting in this investigation."

Suspect Stofko is currently working as a contract amateur web developer and until September this year was a barista at a local Starbucks—a chain violently targeted in recent weeks by anti-Israel activists.

Since the Hamas terrorist attacks on Israel on Oct. 7, hate watch organizations in multiple Western countries have reported a surge in antisemitic incidents—some of them deadly. Video recordings of many of the incidents in the US show the perpetrators being left-wing and/or Muslim activists. Loay Alnaji, a Muslim academic, was arrested in November for allegedly killing an elderly Jewish man in Ventura County, Calif. during a pro-Palestine protest. Liberal hate-watch group the Anti-Defamation League says they’ve received more than 1,400 reports of antisemitic incidents since the beginning of October. 

The Chabad of Shelton, Conn. was reached for comment about the allegations against Stofko. The Chabad provides services to residents in Newtown and the surrounding area.

Signorelli declined to comment for this report, referring to her daughter by the name “Isaac.” Stofko’s retained attorney Eugene Zingaro sent The Post Millennial a statement: “At this point, with the case still pending, my client has decided that ‘no comment’ shall be his only reply.”

Stofko’s next court date is scheduled for Dec. 21.
