On Tuesday, the second day of Sukkos, a 27-year-old Jewish man was the victim of a brutal hate crime in Flatbush, where he was punched in the chest by an antisemite.
According to reports, the victim was walking on Avenue N and East 21st Street at around 10:15 AM, when a black male suspect walked up to the Jewish victim, unleashed some anti-Semitic expletives, and punched the victim in the chest.
Responding to the incident first, Flatbush Hatzolah transported the victim to Community Hospital where he was treated. NYPD and Flatbush Shomrim’s Yom Tov Patrol were on the scene in seconds and canvassed the area. NYPD 70 Precinct Commanding Officer Deputy Inspector Bruce P. Ceparano personally responded to the scene and the hospital and quickly notified the NYPD’s Hate Crime Task Force.
The search for the suspect is still underway since he managed to flee before authorities arrived.
