In an effort to expedite the search for the assailant who assaulted a young Jewish Brooklyner this past Saturday, the Anti-Defamation League is offering up to $5,000 for information about the person responsible for the attack.

“These attacks on Jewish individuals appear to have become normalized, but we must not let this be the case – an attack on anyone based on their Jewish identity or any identity is abhorrent and should not be tolerated,” Scott Richman, ADL’s New York/New Jersey regional director, said in a statement. “We hope that this reward offering will help us send that message to the community,” he said.

The NYPD is currently on the lookout for the perpetrator and is seeking to identify the suspect who, on January 22 at approximately 1:20 a.m., assaulted a 21-year-old Hasidic man at Troy Ave and Carroll St. in the borough’s Crown Heights section. According to the Hate Crimes Unit, the victim was approached by another man who crossed the street and punched him in the nose, quite possibly making a two-person act.

Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to call the NYPD Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS.
