A Jewish man walking in Crown Heights on Friday afternoon was attacked by a black male in broad daylight.
The attack, which occurred at 4:30 pm on Friday afternoon, took place on Brooklyn Avenue near Union Street.
The Jewish man was walking north on Brooklyn Avenue, when an intoxicated black male approached him, yelling “F— You Jew,” several times, police said.
The attacker then attempted to lunge his body into the Jewish male, but missed him.
The Jewish male then saw a patrol car which was stationed in a high-visibility hate crime prevention post, and reported the incident to the police.
The officers chased down the attacker walking south on Brooklyn Avenue and placed him under arrest for aggravated harassment and menacing.
Hate crimes task force will be investigating, a police source said.
