Gang Attacks On Jews Infuriates Crown Heights Residents - The NYPD is looking into a series of attacks on Jews in Brooklyn. At least one attack was caught on surveillance tape.
Some of the assaults may be part of a disturbing game, Police have yet to connect all the incidents, but released surveillance video that shows one group attacking a Jewish man. The video shows from a few different angles the victim, a man in a hooded jacket, getting punched.
One man who didn’t want to be identified says his 12-year-old son was attacked in the same way. The 64-year-old said his son, who was dressed in traditional Jewish clothing, was attacked last Wednesday afternoon on President Street. The child went to the ground as he heard the group of five to six teens yell out.
“A hysterical, happy shout, ‘We got him,’”
The attacks and vandalism are being investigated by the NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force. The hope is that the suspects in the pictures will be identified.
