There has been another unprovoked assault against a Hasidic in Williamsburg on Thursday, and it was all captured on video.
The attack occurred at 11:45PM in front of 716 Myrtle Avenue.
The NYPD say that 32-year-old Steven Sotomayor walked up to the 21-year-old victim and slapped him in the face with an open hand. No words were exchanged prior to the attack.
Williamsburg Shomrim was on the scene in seconds, followed by the NYPD who took the suspect into custody.
