The victim of a recent anti-Semitic hate crime in Williamsburg, Brooklyn spoke exclusively with CBS2’s Lisa Rozner about his harrowing ordeal.
As reported on YWN, the incident occurred last Shabbos at around 1:15AM on Broadway near Lynch Street.
The victim – wearing his Shtreimel and Bekeshe – was confronted by a group of thugs. Without saying a word, one of the men walked up to the victim and punched him in the face. Another suspect added some anti-Semitic slurs at the man including “you (expletive removed) Jew!” and “we hate Jews”.
The suspects remain on the loose.
