(Scroll down for video) A Hasidic man is the latest “Knockout Game” victim after being sucker punched in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, New York.

The man was walking down a street in Williamsburg on Sunday night, when he became the latest victim of a game in which innocent people are sucker punched by strangers.

Many of the victims have been attacked in predominantly Jewish neighborhoods.

Eli Leidner, 26, was hit by a man and a woman at 10:40 p.m., on Bedford Avenue and Taylor Street. He was not badly hurt.

A relative said that Leidner was sure that he was attacked because he is Jewish.

Jewish politicians condemned the attack. Brooklyn Police have launched an investigation into the attack, but so far, no arrests have been made.
