Brooklyn: Jewish Man Assaulted

The unprovoked attack of a Jewish man who was assaulted by an unidentified black man was caught on camera.

Yeshiva World News

Police and Shomrim are looking for a man who assaulted a Jewish pedestrian on Tuesday afternoon.

Sources tell YWN that at around 3:30PM, a man walking down Avenue J between East 13 and East 14 was randomly punched in the face by an unidentified black man. He then kicked the victim as well, before calmly walking away.

YWN has confirmed that the victim has never seen the attacker before, nor were any words exchanged prior to the assault. Nothing anti-Jewish was said before this attack.

The NYPD and Flatbush Shomrim canvassed the area for close to two hours. He was last seen on Ocean Avenue and Avenue J.

The suspect is approximately 5 foot 8, 250 pounds, was wearing a black tee shirt with the words “STAGE CREW” in white lettering on the back, and had grey pants.

Police tell YWN that they are taking this isolated incident very seriously, but stress that there has not been an assault of this kind in quite some time. Police advise the community to remain calm, but to be aware of their surroundings at all time, and to report anything suspicious immediately.

If you see this man, or have any information that can help police, please call 911 and then Flatbush Shomrim’s 24 hour emergency hotline at 718-338-9797.

The attack comes amid multiple hate crimes in and around the city, and in wake of the horrific shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh that left 11 Jews dead.

Last month, a Hasidic man was viciously beaten by a Muslim cab driver in Boro Park.

it appears that the attacker is white and wearing a yarlmulka and when bumped into someone by mistake, instantly lost it

Looks like
Looks like the guy bumped into him and that's what threw him off.

Also his Tshirt says stage crew so that's a great hint. He may have been on a job nearby.

Sick of it
Why the heck don't Jews ever fight back?

It doesn't sound good that the police are stressing that 'there hasn't been an attack like this in some time'.

See the Clue ? The Blue Bag He Just Bought Something -
1) First Maximize Screen to view in laptop
2) Use Pause button to slow down action, pause at 0:09 secs
3) Although, in regular speed, the guy looked white, from the front, based upon hair, and side view, he looks light skinned African/Latino
4) He s holding a fancy little blue bag...can NYPD zoom it ? do other stores have surveillance, what store locally uses a small little blue bag with writing in card receipt ?
5) Slow down the video and expand...he is not wearing a Yarmulka...0:10 sec

To 6
Seems that the victim reported his attack and is indeed a Jewish person wearing kippah.

@# 7 - Misinformation
1) There is no evidence that the attack was by a man wearing a Yarmulka

2) If you slow down the video and maximize and pause, you can see for yourself

3) A screen photo grab may make it appear there is a blue object that looks like a kippah in some photos, but if you view it in slow motion, you can see the blue is a background object
