The suspect wanted in a vicious attack against a Jewish man in Crown Heights has been arrested.

An NYPD source confirmed to YWN that the man was taken into custody this morning.

As YWN had reported, 63-year-old Rabbi Abraham Gopin was walking in Lincoln Terrace Park in Crown Heights when he was brutally attacked.

The suspect threw a large brick at the victim. He lost two teeth and broke his nose in the attack, and received several stitches.

A Crown Heights Hatzolah member saw the victim with blood on his face on Empire Boulevard and Utica Avenue, and called for additional assistance.

No words were exchanged between the suspect and the victim prior to the attack.

The suspect is currently hospitalized in a psychiatric ward at a local hospital.

Charges were pending, and his name was not yet released.
