An man violently attacked a Chassidic Jewish man in Crown Heights on Friday while spewing anti-Semitic hate speech, the NYPD says.

The 32-year-old victim was approached by an unknown assailant at President Street and Utica Avenue in Crown Heights around 3:00PM Friday, when a man asked him “What are you looking at?” before punching him in the face and head, authorities said.

They said the suspect started punching the man in the head and kicking him in the legs, all while making anti-Semitic remarks, including “Nazis should have killed you Jews”.

The NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force is investigating the incident.

Police said the victim was transported to a hospital in Cobble Hill.

The suspect, who ran in the direction of Schenectady Avenue, wore a black jacket, gray hooded sweatshirt, black pants and black sneakers.

“Our Volunteers responded to an unprovoked assault at approximately 3 pm,” Crown Heights SHomrim wrote in a Tweet. “Multiple Vol’s responded quickly and canvassed the area for the perpetrator yielding negative results. @NYPD71Pct is investigating this as a possible bias crime as well @NYPDHateCrimes.”

Hatzalah treated the victim and transported him to the hospital for an evaluation.

  1. “The suspect, who ran in the direction of Schenectady Avenue, wore a black jacket, gray hooded sweatshirt, black pants and black sneakers”

    What is the race of the suspect? Who should we be looking for? Why would they leave that information out?

  2. Refua shleima.
    But seriously, do we need such graphic and violent images and videos? It’s sick and tasteless, not to mention poor journalism. (I never watch them or look at the pictures davka, but the violent pictures are sometimes the article thumbnails. So bad.)

  3. The thug’s clothing is described, but not the fact that he’s black. I would’ve guessed it without the film footage. It’s NYC, where the Republican oppressed poor minorities rule the streets with no fear of repercussions.

  4. Is it not helpful to know that the suspect is Black? What kind of craziness leads to this basic identifying characteristic being left out of his description?

  5. reply to huju
    yes the video IS RELELVANT. That is the suspect they are looking for. That’s why it has on the video a phone number to call, and the phrase “Crime Stoppers” so that anyone who recognizes or has information on the person shown, can contact the number regarding this violent crime that was committed.

  6. I believe that the headline is misleading , should have said ” APE ON THE LOOSE ” . No need for examination. If he really said what he said about the Nazis then I would suggest putting him back on a boat class 3 or lower and ship him back to the Motherland AFRICA . That would solve the worlds problem.
