A bochur was assaulted in an unprovoked attack near 770 Eastern Parkway during the first day of Sukkos in Crown Heights.
The 15-year-old bochur, who is visibly Chasidic and was dressed in full Jewish attire, is visiting New York for the Tishrei month. He was davening Maariv in the tent near 770 at approximately 7 PM on Monday evening when a young Hispanic woman entered the tent and slapped him across the face.
The woman was also shouting and screaming obscenities at the bochur, bystanders said, although she did not say anything specifically antisemitic.
The woman then fled the tent and was apprehended by 2 police officers who were stationed outside 770. She was arrested and charged with aggravated harassment as a hate crime.
Hate Crimes will be taking over the case, the local police said.
