Stony Brook University student Yonatan Herzfeld was taking the S-Shuttle train between Grand Central and Times Square Sunday when he says an African-American began harassing him for wearing a kippa.
Yonatan described the incident on Facebook, writing, “I was just chased off the S train on the subway at Grand Central because im visibly Jewish because I wear a kippa. The black man was chasing me, shouting about my kippa and drawing a circle referring to my kippa saying “whats that you got on your head”. Everyone stood back and did nothing while i was screaming for help. The worst was the lady screaming at me telling me its my fault because I was recording the hate crime.”
Yonatan started recording and ran from the man while screaming for help. A police report has been filed with the NYPD.
