Surveillance footage has captured an unprovoked attack against a 21-year-old Yeshiva student on Friday night in Crown Heights.
The bochur and a friend were heading home to their Yeshiva dorm Friday night at approximately 1:30 am when the incident occurred.
The pair were walking past 1505 Carroll Street near Troy Avenue when a Black male, who appeared to be around 18 years old, approached the bochurim, the victims told COLlive.com.
The assailant punched one of the Bochurim in the face, causing him injury to his nose and bruising on his face.
The victims said the man ran off towards Troy Avenue.
Police and an ambulance were called to treat the victim’s injuries.
Rabbi Chanina Sperlin of the CHJCC told COLlive.com that the police are investigating and hate crimes will be investigating the incident as well.
