As YWN reported on Tuesday evening, the NYPD are searching for a suspect who shouted an anti-Semitic remark and threw a rock through the window of a moving car at Nostrand Avenue and Avenue J in Flatbush.
According to police, at around 4:53PM, in front of 2401 Nostrand Avenue, an unknown individual shouted an anti-Semitic remark and proceeded to throw a rock through the rear driver’s side window of a 2015 Chrysler van traveling Northbound on Nostrand Avenue.
The rock missed her 6-year-old child sitting in the back seat by inches. The child was child covered in shards of glass, but thankfully not injured.
The individual was last seen fleeing on foot southbound on Nostrand Avenue.
