SHOCK VIDEO: Jewish Man Viciously Assaulted in Unprovoked Attack on Ave J in Midwood

Police and Shomrim are looking for a man who assaulted a Jewish pedestrian on Tuesday afternoon.

Sources tell YWN that at around 3:30PM, a man walking down Avenue J between East 13 and East 14 was randomly punched in the face by an unidentified black man. He then kicked the victim as well, before calmly walking away.

YWN has confirmed that the victim has never seen the attacker before, nor were any words exchanged prior to the assault. Nothing anti-Jewish was said before this attack.

As can be seen in the attached footage, the two men appeared to accidentally bump into each other just before the assault occured.

The NYPD and Flatbush Shomrim canvassed the area for close to two hours. He was last seen on Ocean Avenue and Avenue J.

The suspect is approximately 5 foot 8, 250 pounds, was wearing a black tee shirt with the words “STAGE CREW” in white lettering on the back, and had grey pants.

Police tell YWN that they are taking this isolated incident very seriously, but stress that there has not been an assault of this kind in quite some time. Police advise the community to remain calm, but to be aware of their surroundings at all time, and to report anything suspicious immediately.

If you see this man, or have any information that can help police, please call 911 and then Flatbush Shomrim’s 24 hour emergency hotline at 718-338-9797.

The attack comes amid multiple hate crimes in and around the city, and in wake of the horrific shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh that left 11 Jews dead.

As reported by YWN on Tuesday, a gang of black teens attacked a Hasidic boy and vandalized a Shul in Williamsburg.

Last month, a Hasidic man was viciously beaten by a Muslim cab driver in Boro Park.

On Monday, the NYPD announced it had arrested two suspects in connection to multiple swastikas found sprayed on the steps and garage doors of residential homes in Brooklyn Heights on October 30. (Garden Place, between Joralemon Street and State Street.)

18-year-old Jarrick Wiltshire and 17-year-old Daul Moultrie were charged with three counts of aggravated harassment.

On Friday night, police arrested 26-year-old James Polite for scrawling anti-Semitic messages inside a Reform Jewish temple in Prospect Heights, and setting multiple fires outside Jewish Yeshivas and establishments in Williamsburg.

Messages written found at the Union Temple in Prospect Heights included “Kill all Jews”, “die Jew rats we are here,” “Hitler,” and “Jews better be ready”.

Polite was a volunteer on Barack Obama’s first presidential campaign, worked for former New York City Council speaker Christine Quinn and other Democrats.

On Sunday, police on Long Island removed a swastika-defaced campaign sign in Stony Brook. That sign was for Perry Gershon, a Jew, who is running on the Democratic ticket in the 1st congressional district race against Republican Lee Zeldin.

  1. “Police advise the community to remain calm” = They have lost their minds!!!!
    There is not one reason anyone should remain calm in this current enviroment. The police are in the Jewish neighborhoods in Flatbush to give tickets and tickets only ( i’m not even from brooklyn ). When was the last time the police were able to catch someone like this ( WITHOUT the help of Shomrim.
    Simply put, Police yourselves!!!!
    Concerned for you!

  2. Call both numbers even on Shabbos if need be, and until he is apprehended, take your cell phone on a Shabbos belt, so that you have phone access immediately, if this wicked evil salacious perp is seen.

  3. Not sure if JDL is the answer but certainly need the NYPD to treat these assaults as a form of domestic terrorism and respond with overwhelming force. Take the handcuffs of the police and tell De Blasio to back off wih this political correctness. There is a middle ground somewhere but the pendulum has swung way too far against aggressive police action to protect the frum tzibur from these attacks.

  4. It’s disgusting that this HATE CRIME ASSAULT can take place on Avenue J of all places, and not one word from our so called “askonim”, politicians, rabbis, nothing.
    If today’s mother’s didn’t molly coddle their “boychickle-princes” perhaps one of them would have taught “Mr. Stage Crew” a bloody lesson he would never forget.
    Wake up YIdden, before one of these people kill one of us in the streets of Brooklyn.

    Moderators Note: Who said this was a hate crime?

    Are you kidding?
    Didn’t you watch the video?
    Mr. Stage Crew ignored everyone else on the street but went STRAIGHT FOR THE GENTLEMAN WEARING THE YARMULKA.

    Ignorance is bliss!

  6. In some cases of course it may not be good to pick a fight. Such as when the chassidish boys hat was tipped over by 5 teens. But if there are OTHERS there they can together at least shout and if in a group APPROACH to scare away or if possible stop them. Then it should not mske them think Jewsd are easy targets. Also All Taamod Al Dam Rayacha. And there can be community meetings or rallies for tougher law enforcement.

  7. It could be I’m wrong but i dont see any anti semitism here.
    If u look closely u Will see one or both were walking on an angle and they shoulder bumped each other .
    The crew dude being pre occupied must’ve thought the other guy bumped him purposely which in my opinion caused the “crew” guy to get out of control.
    Just my 2 cents.
