A Jewish woman was slapped in a possible bias attack on Wednesday evening in Crown Heights.
The incident occurred at approximately 5:10 PM in front of 346 New York Avenue when the Jewish woman was approached by an assailant, who asked, “are you Jewish,” the victim told police.
When the victim replied yes, the attacker slapped both of the victim’s hands, causing the victim to sustain a cut on her right hand.
The victim followed her attacker to S. John’s Place and called 911, where the 77th Precinct responded, who then notified the 71st Precinct.
The incident is being investigated as a possible bias incident, and the hate crimes task force is investigating.
