The anti-Jewish hate continues in Crown Heights.
A young Jewish mother said she was walking on Albany Avenue to pick up her children from school when she became the latest victim of local anti-Semitism on Tuesday.
The mother, who asked not to be named, told COLlive.com she was walking with an empty stroller between President and Carroll streets at 2:30 PM when a black man passed by and spat on her.
The man, who she estimated is in his 20s, then went on to yell an “[expeltive] Jews!” and continued walking up the road. She was quick to snap a photo of him walking away and then saw him do the same to a Jewish woman in her 50s.
“I was literally shocked,” the mother said. “I heard about such attacks and have pictured in my mind what I would do if it happened. When it actually happened, you are so shocked and scared to do anything.”
The mother said she called the local Shmira and Shomrim patrols and is waiting for officers of the NYPD 71st Precinct to interview her and file a complaint.
“I didn’t think this would happen to me,” she said, in reference to the recent string of attacks on Jewish people in Crown Heights and other Brooklyn neighborhoods.
