Despite an increase in security at 770 Eastern Parkway following the stabbing of a Yeshiva student in December, an emotionally disturbed beggar continues to loiter in 770 Eastern Parkway’s main Shul.
The man, who appears to be homeless, collects money from congregants in 770. Locals have reported that he is extremely aggressive, shouting at people and starting an occasional fight.
On Wednesday evening, he became increasingly violent, so the Police were called. He was removed from the Shul and taken away in an ambulance.
On Friday, however, he was back, verbally attacking congregants who were praying in the Shul.
This man, among various other homeless individuals, continues to have access to the shul at Chabad Lubavitch headquarters in Brooklyn, despite the fact that Yeshiva student Levi Rosenblatt was stabbed by a mentally disturbed man with a knife on December 8th, and police insured that security would be increased at the Shul which hundreds visit daily.
