HATE IN CROWN HEIGHTS: Jewish Man Punched in Face on Shabbos Morning; Unprovoked Attack

5

The following is via CHI:

In an unprovoked, and possibly hate related incident, a Jewish man was assaulted by two black males in front of 728 East New York Ave, between Albany and Troy Avenues. The assault happened early Saturday morning at around 6:30am as the man was heading off to shul.

The Jewish man was approached by two black males, who without saying anything, suddenly punched him in the face. The victim fought back, during which he was able to grab his attackers glasses. Once it became obvious that the victim would not go down without a fight, the assailants the fled towards Albany Ave.

The victim initially asked a black woman nearby to call 911, but the woman refused, instead turning away and going into a nearby building.

After 20 minutes of calling for help, a Jewish man came out of a nearby house, and after hearing the story, called 911 and Hatzolah.

When the police came the victim was able to give the glasses to the police as evidence.

The victim was transported by Hatzolah to Methodist Hospital in Park Slope, where he was treated for minor injuries to both ears.

As per a police source, the glasses have been sent to a lab to acquire DNA evidence about the assailant.

The 71st precinct has also promised extra police presence following the incident.

  1. MosheInGolus, lol.

    Over 30% blacks and over 30% Hispanics voted they were anti-Semititic in a recent poll.

    Only 10% of whites were anti-Semititic in that same poll.

  2. MAYBE JEWISH COMMUNITY LEADERS IN WILLIAMSBERG AND CROWN HEIGHTS MIGHT TRY TO MEET WITH HEADS OF LOCAL GROUPS TO SEE IF THEY CAN WORK ON INCREASING “PEACEFUL NEIGHBOR” EDUCATION?

  3. Cowards. And cowards of very little brain at that. Why is this incident not being investigated as a hate crime? If this were to happen in my neighborhood, okay, I’m not liking it but at least you could definitively consider it a random act of unprovoked hostility. But this? Who’s out on the street that early on a Saturday morning? Only the Orthodox Jews walking to Shul and miscreants looking to get up to no good. So someone please to explain to me again why this isn’t being investigated as a targeted hate crime?

    Meanwhile, at this point you’d think they would have learned to quit messing with the Jews by now. Good grief!! These Two pathetic specimens were bested by One Jewish guy who while even outnumbered and under attack was still able to relieve one of them of his glasses and his DNA and send them both skittering back to wherever it was they came from. What an embarrassing pair of flops they are!
