Watch: Man admits shouting “I’m tired of Jews” and punching New York orthodox Jew in the face

Christian Rojas, 36, of Brooklyn has been charged with assault as a hate crime and aggravated harassment as a hate crime and assault. The charges come after a 49-year-old Jewish man was attacked early this morning on his way to synagogue. His attacker allegedly threw the victim’s mobile phone to the ground before punching him in the face and shouting “I am tired of Jews.” The victim refused medical treatment for a bloody nose.

An eyewitness to the incident told NBC New York that Rojas screamed: “Watch this face, I’ll be back…I hate all Jews.” A video captured at the scene appears shows a handcuffed man apparently confessing to the attack.

There has recently been a spate of antisemitic attacks in New York. Just yesterday a Jewish man was stabbed in the back on the street.
