New video footage has been released showing the brutal assault of two Jewish teens by a group of teenage assailants.
Two teens who are accused of allegedly being part of the group which violently attacked and robbed the two Jewish boys in Crown Heights have been arrested after being identified in surveillance footage of the attack.
Police are still searching for the other attackers.
The teens were part of a group of 6 thugs who attacked and violently mugged two Jewish boys on Monday evening in Crown Heights.
The victims were walking on Albany Avenue near Crown Street at approximately 9:15 PM when the group of 6 black teens approached them from behind, police said.
The victims heard the teens say to ‘get them,’ before they approached one of the victims and demanded he give them what was in his pockets. They then punched him in the face, causing him to fall to the ground, police said.
Bystanders called Hatzalah, who transported the first victim to the hospital where he was treated for a broken nose and other broken bones in his face.
The NYPD 71st Precinct detectives are investigating the case, and are still searching for the other 4 perpetrators.
Rabbi Chanina Sperlin of the CHJCC says he and Rabbi Eli Cohen of the CHJCC and other community activists are involved to bring evidence of the violent nature of the attack, in which both victims were physically attacked, and which left one victim heavily bruised with several broken bones in his face.
“The main thing is to make sure this does not happen again,” said Chanina Sperlin. “We demand that the NYPD add more protection in the neighborhood. Our children, our families, must be able to walk safely on our streets,” he said.
Shomrim is going above and beyond. Thank you.
Relatives of the victim.
SHOW THIS VIDEO ON ALL SOCIAL MEADIA AND OFFER $ for the info and them jail all of them!!!!
As a mom I can’t tolerate this violence this is group organized crime they are not kids – they are criminals
No, the Main Thing is that this attack should not have happened. The victims need to be ‘made whole’ . I believe this entails the attackers facing the victims and acknowledging their crime. Returning anything taken (obviously). And paying restitution. Yes, the criminals should have to grovel.
Please get the facts straight: 1)There were six perps not five 2)It happened on the corner of Carroll not Crown 3)The perp asked the victim for “bread” and when the victim tried escaping the perp chased him across the street then punched him in the face as you can see in the video Again big thank you to the witnesses who followed them back to where they came from and shomrim for helping make these arrests. Please share this so that we can get these animals off the streets and locked up for a long time but more importantly to… Read more »
Can the perps be sued by the victims?
Won’t help anything
The victims can sue the perps, legally speaking. If a person commits a crime and does harm, the person hurt is entitled to money. I learned this in my security training.
You would need to consult with an attorney to evaluate if it’s worth it.
It is a costly process, and if they are under 18 you might not get anything.
If they are over 18, you might get a judgement but will have pretty much no way to collect it.
They shouldn’t be able to hide out right inside our community. Shame that people will harbor them.
can the ag be sued for not prosecuting?
Thank you for the space to raise awareness about this attack in the hopes of preventing more in the future. Without COL, this would have been forgotten in a few days. It’s important that we don’t forget what happened to ensure our streets safety for our children.
Bochurim, Women, Men etc. Arm yourself with whatever you can so if something happens to you can fight back. As a community we shouldn’t sit here like sitting ducks, we should be prepared. These things have been happening for years and it’s time to stand up for ourselves.
$10 at sunshine!!!
The city must LIGHT ALL the streets and put cameras on!!!
Still, not a word on ANY of the mainstream media news outlets. Hypocrites.
Are you surprised? Anything that doesn’t fit their narrative won’t get mentioned. According to them, this incident isn’t a crime because blacks are enslaved.
Thank You Shomrim for putting all these videos together.
But most of this video footage is so unclear, most of these apartments building/home/store video cameras are probably over 10 years old.
Having newer model clear cameras is very important.
Obviously if it is in the apartments building/home/stores budget.
Why do not you put your money where mouth is and you spend the money effort and time
“more protection in the neighborhood”
There is Shomrim. There is Shmira. The public school students need to be taught fear of Hashem and we Yidden need to strengthen in fear of Hashem too so Amalek doesn’t attack us.
Thank you to whoever put in the effort to make this video. I hope that it’ll raise more awareness and help in some way.
If the two of the group were identified, check thier social media and find other criminas from the same group. Make pressure on thier Community
i hope the boys feel good physically and emotionally.
How does it help to just post the video on COL, to our own community?? We know these teens are criminals and are guilty and need to be punished. Their friends need to be warned and stopped from doing it to our innocent kids It needs to be sent to the police, to their community leaders, activists and representatives, etc!
The community appreciates your dedication
