The library of Agudas Chasidei Chabad (Aguch), located adjacent to 770, was broken into this past Friday night by two Lubavitcher Bochurim. The Aguch Library houses a priceless collection of books and artifacts vital to Chabad history, most of which was amassed by the Lubavitcher Rebbes over several generations.
The break in was discovered Shabbos morning by a group of worshippers who conduct a minyan in the Previous Rebbe’s apartment during the high holidays. The perpetrators entered the premises by breaking through an upper floor window, cutting themselves in the process.
The two bochurim, one a Crown Heights local and the other Israeli, left a fairly large amount of blood and bloody fingerprints at the scene, making their identification an easy task for investigators.
They were arrested this morning and face charges of break in and entry.
