The NYPD arrested a man for shouting anti-Semitic slurs at a Jewish man in Brooklyn, Thursday morning.
YWN spoke to the victim who says that he was parked on Myrtle Avenue – not far from Williamsburg – at around 8:40AM. He was parked legally, minding his own business, about to have a meeting at a building nearby.
Suddenly, an African American male began shouting at him through the window that he should leave the neighborhood. “This is a black neighborhood and you don’t belong here,” the man shouted.
The victim immediately began filming the man, who returned and (as can be seen in the attached video), began shouting “Heil Hitler” and making a “Hitler salute”.
The man then went into a store, and returned and once again began shouting anti-Semitic slurs at him.
The victim called police who arrived quickly and took a report.
Around 30 minutes later, the victim received a call from police at the NYPD’s 88 Precinct that they had detained a man and needed him to identify him. He was easily identified, and was arrested.
His charges are not yet known, although Hate Crime charges are likely.
