Jewish Girls Attacked on Sukkos

2 Jewish teenage girls were violently assaulted by a woman while walking on Kingston Avenue near the Simchas Bais Hashoeva dancing.

A woman was arrested over the Sukkos holiday in Crown Heights for attacking young Jewish girls.

The incident occurred on Thursday night, the second night of Sukkos, at the corner of Lefferts Ave and Kingston Ave, at approximately 10 pm.

The perpetrator, described as a female Hispanic, was walking when she suddenly stopped 2 Jewish girls, aged 14 and 15, and proceeded to ask them where they were going. She then violently assaulted one of the girls, grabbing her by the hair and then by the throat.

The girls ran to a police car that was on the corner, patrolling the nightly dancing, and a Shmira volunteer who was nearby arrived on the scene as well.

The woman then violently assaulted the Shmira volunteer, punching him in the face multiple times. The police quickly arrived and apprehended the perpetrator, who was arrested at the scene.

The NYPD is treating the case as a possible hate crime, a police source said.

In case of any emergency, do not hesitate to call Shmira at 718-221-0303 and 911.

The girls ran to the nearest police vehicle they found, while the Shmira member intervened and blocked the perp from going after them

C'mon, some women are muscular, did you ever walk into a gym, well... There is countless of muscular women there, so maybe this lady was muscular, and stronger then the shmira, so in the future please think before you speak!

First of all, most of the Hispanics I've dealt with are not stupid, though, unfortunately, a good many are, through no fault of their own, poorly educated. Second , we know all too well that there are plenty of intelligent people who had/have no trouble committing hate crimes; just ask any holocaust survivor. Third, maybe you should take the time to review your homophones...

We have the power to really prevent this garbage..
..by getting 1-organized, 2-bAchdus, and 3-everyone participating.

crown heights at 10, especially shabbos or yt, is busy as 5 in the afternoon... so the 'night' factor doesn't mean anything
(10/9/2017 3:29:50 AM)
even though crown heights is usually ok at that time
i find that walking on kingston between lefferts and east ny is not a nice block even if you'd be walking yourself anywhere else
(10/9/2017 3:31:28 AM)
To all who spoke about 'too late at night'
i understand your point, and your concerns to ensure the safety of everyone.. but even if it was late at night, that doesn't change the fact that this is not ok! one bit!
