SUNNYSIDE, Queens (WABC) -- A Queens condo president who caused an uproar after the lobby of his building was filled with racist posters and flags, was arrested.

70-year-old Neal Milano was arrested Sunday for stalking and harassing a former resident of 47-55 39th Place in Sunnyside.

Police say the resident told them Milano followed her on numerous occasions and grabbed and pulled her towards him.

In the lobby of the building, there's a swastika along with pictures of Hitler and Stalin, a shrine to the confederacy and images of guns.

The building's tongue-in-cheek directory lists notorious Nazis as living there, along with former U.S. Attorney Preet Bahara.

Residents of the building report being scared of Milano, and say that for years he has harassed and threatened mostly minority renters.

Sunday's arrest was not related to the propaganda in the building. Milano was out of the country and just returned.
