I guess the pandemic is waning in New York City because the attacks in Crown Heights are back.
CROWN HEIGHTS, Brooklyn (WABC) -- The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is looking for three suspects who attacked a Jewish man in Crown Heights.
Video shows the suspects firing a BB gun out of a car near Montgomery Street and Albany Avenue on Oct. 11, hitting the 23-year-old man in the head.
The victim was wearing traditional Jewish garb at the time and was knocked to the ground as the suspects drove off.
A Jewish man was assaulted by a group of 5 men while walking on the street in Crown Heights on Thursday evening in what police are investigating as a possible bias incident.
The incident occurred at approximately 8:15 pm when the victim, a 25-year-old visibly Jewish man wearing traditional Jewish clothing, was walking on Empire Boulevard towards Albany Avenue.
5 Black males, approximately 5’10—6’0 feet tall and wearing backpacks, approached the victim without prior interaction, police said. One of them punched the victim in the face, knocking his glasses to the ground, and calling out to him, “you dirty Jew.”
A young trio attacked Jewish children and teens in a disturbing Brooklyn spree, cops said early Tuesday.
The three suspects, believed to be teen girls, first approached a 12-year-old boy walking home with his 3-year-old brother on Skillman Street near DeKalb Avenue in Clinton Hill around 6 p.m. Friday, police said.
One of the suspects slapped the toddler across the face before taking off, authorities said. His brother was not struck.
Then around 5:35 p.m. Sunday, the trio approached two female siblings, 18 and 7, walking to a store on DeKalb Avenue near Bedford Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant, cops said.
The suspects allegedly grabbed the teen victim by the jacket and pulled her to the ground. Her sister was not hurt, cops said.
About five minutes later, they approached a 9-year-old boy who was walking on Skillman Street near Lafayette Avenue and slapped him on the top of his head multiple times, cops said.
All of the victims were wearing traditional Jewish attire when they were targeted, police said. The NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force is investigating.
