String of attacks on Jews rattles Brooklyn neighborhood

January 31, 2019


Jan 29, 2019. Police in New York are investigating two separate attacks targeting Jewish men in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, the latest in a string of apparently anti-Semitic assaults.

According to reports in local media, a 51-year-old Orthodox Jewish man was violently attacked by three men. Police say the men approached the victim on President Street, and punched him in the face and body. The victim said the assailants did not say anything to him or attempt to steal his wallet.

The New York Police Department believes the cases are linked, and so far has made two arrests. Reports said 18-year-old Navar Walters and 20-year-old Teshon Bannister have been charged with assault as a hate crime. A third suspect remains on the loose.

There have been several assaults on identifiably Jewish victims in Crown Heights recently. Last week, two residents were violently attacked on Kingston Avenue by a group of teenage males. The same NYPD Twitter account also posted on 12/10/2018 of a picture of suspects “These two individuals are wanted in connection with an ANTI-SEMITIC assault on two victims AGED 9 and 12”
