Man arrested after allegedly shouting “all you Jews must die” and spitting on Jewish man in Crown Heights

A man has been arrested in Crown Heights, New York, after allegedly spitting on a Jewish man and shouting “all you Jews must die”.

The incident happened on Friday morning, when a Jewish man was walking near the intersection of Eastern Parkway and Albany Avenue. Thankfully some police officers were stationed nearby. The victim rode his bicycle up to them and the police immediately arrested the suspect.

The suspect reportedly offered “fierce resistance”, with some of the struggle being captured by this bystander footage.

The suspect has been charged with aggravated harassment as a hate crime. We commend the police for their swift and decisive action.
