A young Jewish girl was harassed and threatened on a New York subway – the latest in a recent string of antisemitic incidents in the Big Apple.

Police say that on Wednesday, officers responded to a 911 call for harassment.

Upon arriving at the scene, they were met by a 22-year-old frum girl. She told them that she had gone on the southbound “2” train at Franklin avenue and sat down in the front section of the train car.

As the train was in motion, an unknown male approximately 6 feet in height, 135 pounds, wearing a black ski mask, red sweater, black jacket, and black jeans approaches her and yells, “You little Jewish girl, you make me nervous, get off the train or I am going to hurt you.”

The girl became nervous and frightened, got up and went to the other side of the train car.

The perpetrator then yelled, “that’s not far enough!” and continued repeating the aforementioned statements.

When the train reached the Sterling Street station, the Jewish girl got of the train and ran away.

The victim was not injured and refused medical attention.

The transit district commanding officer referred the case to the NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force and they are investigating further.

  1. A 22 year old is not a “young girl.”

    Also, am I the only one who thinks that there are plenty of better descriptive phrases than “HATE”?

  2. Why would they, they all agree with hating Jews. It’s not like they were attacking an Asian or saying something about blacks. I was riding the bus and as I sat down I saw swastikas and SS symbols drawn on near the window.

  3. Of course no one got up to help this girl, and we all know the reason but no one has the guts to say it.
    Well let me be the one to explain why no one got up to help this girl. (hope YWN will not censor it) you see that particular train in that neighborhood is almost always 90% black.a very large percentage of blacks hate white people and especially Jews.
    Blacks are the real racist’s in this country

  4. No need to be alarmed. Kathy Hochul is keeping us all safe by making little kindergarten children wear their masks properly while eating their snacks. Governor Hochul is a true leader keeping us all safe. And so is attorney general Letitia James. She’s hard at work combing thru former President Trump’s personal tax returns dating back to 1978, hoping maybe the IRS missed something. There is nothing that threatens subway riders, like those dangerous Trump tax returns! We’re in good hands. If you disagree with me, you’re a domestic terrorist racist.

  5. 99/100 people will not get involved
    I can’t mention the story here because it’s too graphic, but something happened recently in Pennsylvania and quite a few people did absolutely nothing as something horrific was taking place.

  6. Why would the. My friend a few years back was on the bus and a black teenager girl had her fair amount of slurs at her and then pulled off her head coving, no one including the bus driver said anything let alone even kick of the the black girl… Such a sad world we live in

  7. People wake up, have we forgotten that we have been victims of incidents like these before? Do we want history to repeat itself? Hashem Yerachem.

  8. comcerrned mom:
    no one gets involved bc no one wants to die on he train.
    this isn’t the 50s or 60s, where things end in insults and fists.
    today people altercations often end up dead R”L.

  9. If I had to guess, incidents targeting Yiddin will increase, corresponding to the increase of public skepticism against vax and flu propaganda and the fact that a disproportionate number of Yiddin saliently head those relevant companies and gov agencies in which public confidence now rapidly declines.

  10. For decades NYC was the safe place to be for Jews in the USA. Based on personal observations and reporting on YWN that safety level is gone. Makes me wonder how things are in other parts of the country which don’t seem to be reported on?

  11. what’s the difference if she is married or not. The stupid point that people are making, “22 is not young*.
    That piece of garbage that harassed her didn’t care what age she was or if she was married. He was just a filthy anti-Semite.

  12. Every incident that I am seeing in the UK and USA makes me more determined to fulfil my dream and get to our own land. I am very aware that it will be not be a sugar coated life there, that there are many anti-frum yidden there, but the point is they are yidden. I am so scared that we are all burying our heads in the sand until chas vesholom it is too late. Can I ask NaftaliColeman and Ohevet Yisrael – are you already in Israel? And if not, are you already making plans?
