First a 12-year-old, now a 20-year-old.
A Chabad yeshiva bochur was attacked by a group of African Americans on the main thoroughfare of the Crown Heights neighborhood in Brooklyn Sunday night.
Walking south bound on Kingston Avenue near Crown Street at around 9:30 PM, the 20-year-old Jewish male was met by several black males of similar age heading north bound, when one of them punched him in the back of his head.
“I was in total shock,” the bochur, who was not injured, told COLlive.com. “It came out of nowhere.”
The New York Police Department’s 71st Precinct said Lt. Woroby responded to the scene and a canvass was immediately conducted with negative results.
The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force and the duty captain were notified.
This is the second local hate crime attack within a week. On Wednesday, Nov 6, 2013, a 12-year-old Jewish boy was hit by two teenage blacks while playing ball on President Street in Crown Heights.
