The woman was walking on Kingston Avenue near Lincoln Place at approximately 1:00 pm on Friday, when a black man came towards her and punched her in the arm.
“This is the second alleged unprovoked assault of a member of the Jewish community in Crown Heights in the past week alone. We remain deeply concerned about these alleged acts of violence and the escalating climate of tension and fear that has followed,” said Evan R. Bernstein, Regional Director of ADL New York / New Jersey.
The perpetrator is described as a black male, about 5.10/6 ft, with black jacket and pants, black shoes, and matted dreadlocks.
The NYPD Hate Crimes unit is investigating the attacks.
In response to the recent incidents, the NYPD informed that there will be six additional patrol cars every day in the areas that have experienced the most incidents, with additional officers assigned to Kingston Avenue on foot.
