(Scroll down for video) Police have launched a hate crime investigation after blacks are attacking Jews in a game they call “knockout attack,” according to police reports in New York.

Brooklyn Police said that a hate crime investigation is underway after at least eight hate crime incidents since September were reported.

All the victims were Jews.

A surveillance video shows the latest assault in Crown Heights at 9:30 p.m. on Sunday night, as a group of young African-American men cross the intersection at Kingston and Crown streets.

One of them can be seen beating a Jewish man, 20-years-old, in the face.

Police confirmed that this is only one of the eight incidents being investigated by the hate crimes task force of the NYPD.

A young Jewish girl was also attacked on Crown Street, and last Wednesday, a 12-year-old boy was beaten and thrown to the ground near Brooklyn Avenue and President Street.

Anti-Semitic graffiti has also been spray-painted in the neighborhood.

Detectives are going door to door along Kingston Avenue on Tuesday, seeking additional surveillance video, which can lead them to those responsible.
