Another Hasidic man in Crown Heights has been attacked with a rock, and the NYPD is investigating the incident as a possible hate crime.
The NYPD says that a man may have been attacked by 4-5 individuals, who fled the scene. Police are currently looking for the suspects.
The victim had a laceration to the head, but he did not go to the hospital.
The incident took place around 5:30 p.m., when the man, who works in deliveries, was in a truck that stopped in traffic on Brooklyn Avenue near Prospect Place, according to COLLive.com.
According to the website, a group of youths then approached the truck and threw a stone in the truck. The driver’s side window was broken, and the rock hit the man in the eye.
The assault comes just two days after a Hasidic man was injured after a massive rock was thrown at him in a Crown Heights park. The NYPD investigated that as a hate crime.
