Footage posted on Twitter by the Crown Heights Shomrim has revealed a brutal attack on a Jewish resident who was beaten by three thugs in front of his young child on Tuesday afternoon.

Crown Heights Shomrim released a statement following the incident, saying “Our Volunteers responded to a brutal assault by a few thugs. Despite a fast response the victim was in shock and wasn’t able to give details. Thank you to Hatzalah and the NYPD for responding. If you see this silver sedan please call 911 and Shomrim.”

In the footage, a car can be seen pulled over to the side of a street, while three thugs brutally attack the driver with blows through the driver’s side window. After the assault, the thugs appear to enter a white vehicle that was blocking the victim’s vehicle from leaving the scene and driving off.

The horrific assault reportedly took place in front of the victim’s 5-year-old child. The victim was transported to the hospital following the beating and has been identified as Yossi Hershkop, who has been described by a Twitter user as a “Crown Heights leader.”
