The New York Police Departement is searching for two men that robbed and assaulted the caretaker of Bais Menachem Mendel - Chabad-Lubavitch of Midwood in Flatbush, led by Rabbi Yochanan Marosow.

At around 5:00 AM Sunday morning, two black males broke into the shul on Avenue J and East 17 Street and proceeded to the third-floor apartment. They broke the door down and assaulted a 45-year-old caretaker.

The man was hit with a broom stick and suffered a laceration to his head. His cell phone, computer and $300 in cash was taken.

The NYPD was first called at around 8:00 AM, as well as Flatbush Hatzolah. He was taken to Maimonides Hospital where he is in stable condition.

Police are taking the incident seriously and immediately requested a Level 1 Mobilization. Multiple Detectives were on the scene and Flatbush Shomrim was assisting in trying to gather video footage from the nearby buildings and homes.

Police tell YWN that there is no reason to believe that this was in anyway an anti-Semitic crime and have reason to believe that this is an isolated incident.

Description of the suspects will be published when they become available.

If you have any information which can assist police, please contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
