A 21-year-old Jewish man was attacked on Tuesday at 15:35 as he left the D line train station at New Utrecht Avenue and 43rd Street. A man walked towards him and shouted “F***ing Jew, where you running? Slow down you f***ing Jew.” The victim responded “Why would you call me like that?” The man responded “Do you want to fight?” He then punched the victim in the head several times.
Shomrim, the Jewish neighbourhood watch patrol, and New York police were dispatched to the scene and the victim was treated by Hatzolah, a Jewish volunteer ambulance service, before being taken to Maimonides Medical Centre in a stable condition.
Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline on 800-577-TIPS.
