The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is once again investigating a bias attack – this time in the heart of the Flatbush Jewish Community.
The NYPD tells YWN that is happened on Avenue J and East 15th Street on Shabbos (Saturday) evening, around 7:00PM.
The victim told police he was walking down the street, when two men – possibly intoxicated – used anti-Jewish slurs at him, and hit him in the face with a belt. The two men fled on foot. The victim says no words were exchanged prior to the unprovoked attack.
The victim refused medical attention.
Additional information will be published when it becomes available to us.
Another day, another antisemitic attack. On Shabbos. In Brooklyn. Is this New York City's new normal?
