The NYPD Hate Crime Task Force Unit is investigating an incident in which an African-American woman threw a rock at an Orthodox Jewish man while yelling, “Hitler should have killed you all” in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn, NYPD officials told JP.
The incident took place Thursday afternoon when the 28-year-old Jewish man, who works as a construction manger, was standing at the intersection of Dean Street and Franklin Avenue and was approached by an African-American woman who threw a rock into his face and loudly yelled “Hitler should have killed you all.”
He is a young, innocent man who was just out there doing his work when he was attacked, an official said.
Detectives have recovered some surveillance video from the area and are studying it now to see if they can get a clear photo of the suspect, the official added.
