17-year-old Jewish boy punched to the ground in unprovoked attack in New York

A 17-year-old orthodox Jewish boy was assaulted on Tuesday night in Brooklyn as he returned home. The boy was standing at an intersection when a black man walked towards him and punched him in the face, knocking him to the ground.

New York police are treating the incident as an antisemitic hate crime because the victim had never seen his assailant before, nothing was taken from him, and he was wearing traditional Charedi Jewish clothing and holding phylacteries in his hand.

Anyone with information should call New York police on 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
