A woman was arrested over the Sukkos holiday in Crown Heights for attacking young Jewish girls.
The incident occurred on Thursday night, the second night of Sukkos, at the corner of Lefferts Ave and Kingston Ave, at approximately 10 pm.
The perpetrator, described as a female Hispanic, was walking when she suddenly stopped 2 Jewish girls, aged 14 and 15, and proceeded to ask them where they were going. She then violently assaulted one of the girls, grabbing her by the hair and then by the throat.
The girls ran to a police car that was on the corner, patrolling the nightly dancing, and a Shmira volunteer who was nearby arrived on the scene as well.
The woman then violently assaulted the Shmira volunteer, punching him in the face multiple times. The police quickly arrived and apprehended the perpetrator, who was arrested at the scene.
The NYPD is treating the case as a possible hate crime, a police source said.
In case of any emergency, do not hesitate to call Shmira at 718-221-0303 and 911.
