The NYPD is now tracking down five males who attacked a yeshiva bochur in the vicinity of Avenue M and East 18th Street in Flatbush Tuesday afternoon.
In the initial police investigation, the victim was walking in the area when the suspects repeatedly punched him in the face without provocation.
After the assault, the suspects escaped in an unknown direction.
Sources said one of the suspects yelled “Free Palestine!” at the bochur during the assault.
Hatzolah already provided some medical services to the victim.
The Flatbush Shomrim is helping the NYPD in hunting down the suspects.
