Anti-Semitic slurs yelled at teens in Borough Park: Police
The incident allegedly occurred around 1:30 a.m. Saturday, as a 13-year-old and 16-year-old male were walking home along 51st Street and 12th Avenue in Borough Park. They accused men in a black car of driving by and yelling anti-Semitic slurs. No physical contact was made.
Congressman Dov Hikind tweeted out Sunday that he accompanied the boys to the 66th Precinct. Hikind said the men yelled out “Allah [sic] Akbar” — “God is great” in Arabic — as well as “Do you know Hitler? We love Hitler.”
Hikind said the accusations are being taken “very seriously.”
Authorities say they are possibly looking for four male individuals. Their car was described as having TLC license plates.
