Jewish Man Ambushed, Attacked By Group Of Men On Brooklyn Sidewalk – CBS New York

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – There has been another violent attack on a Jewish resident in Brooklyn.

Surveillance cameras caught the disturbing incident on Warsoff Place between Flushing and Park Avenues Tuesday night.

Four suspects are seen stalking and then attacking a Hasidic Jewish man as he walked down the sidewalk.

The victim tries to fight off the gang-style ambush before fleeing the area as the four men chase after him.

Former New York state assemblyman Dov Hikind is demanding the city step up its enforcement after the recent outbreak of anti-Semitic attacks across the five boroughs.

An outspoken advocate for the Jewish community, Hikind is organizing a rally at City Hall Park on Sunday to call for an end to attacks against Jews.

“Another day, another brutal and vicious attack on a Hasidic Jew in Brooklyn. We don’t need more empty talk from city and state “leaders”. We need action! The NYPD should be stepping up patrols in all Jewish neighborhoods until this wave of violent antisemitism subsides,” Hikind said in a statement late Tuesday night.

The Anti Defamation League of New York and Jersey said on social media they were also reaching out to police to found more about this possible bias attack.

Authorities said it’s not being considered a hate crime because no anti-Semitic slurs were made. Instead, police are calling it a random attack and robbery.
