As the NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force continues their investigation into Fridays sickening assault on a Jewish Flatbush man walking to Shul, NY Governor Cuomo says that the New York State Hate Crimes Task Force is joining the investigation.

Video footage tweeted by Flatbush Shomrim shows the 41-year-old Orthodox Jewish man walking to Shul when two men approached him from behind and repeatedly punched him in the face with a closed fist, shortly after 5:45 a.m. Friday.

The man was not taken to a hospital and refused medical attention at the scene.

Police said the suspects took the man’s Tefillin bag and ran. Thankfully, Shomrim recovered the mans Tefillin a few blocks away.

The victim, Levi Zupnik, says that he never saw his attackers, and no words were exchanged before the assault took place.

He quickly ran to a nearby home and rang the bell while simultaneously calling Flatbush Shromim, who in turn called 911.

Both Shomrim and the NYPD arrived on the scene in minutes, but both attackers had fled the area.

The NYPD and Flatbush Shomrim have both increased their patrols in the neighborhood, and Shomrim offered $1,000 reward for information leading to an arrest.

“To the Jewish Community of New York, I know this is exhausting,” Cuomo said in the tweet. “No one should have to worry about being attacked for their religious beliefs, ever. We stand with you and we will not stop fighting until the plague that is hate has been eradicated. Love will win here.”

  1. “We stand with you and we will not stop fighting until the plague that is hate has been eradicated. Love will win here.”

    Huh? What?
    Love will win here? What the heck is this murderous pervert governor talking about?! Even if they’re caught, they’ll be let out thanx to HIS, and his friends in the corrupt assembly, bail reform law!

    What is the race of the suspects? Why would they leave that out? Who should we be looking for? If it’s another one of those white supremacists Trump supporters, we have a right to know.

  2. If you pay attention- there is an individual in red shorts walking in the background. Why did he not interfere or try to assist?
