(Scroll down for video) Four men were arrested and charged with assault as a hate crime after beating a 24-year-old man in a racist “Knockout Game” attack, according to police reports in New York.
Brooklyn Police said that they arrested the four people on Friday.
The attack occurred about 2:30 a.m. at 18th Avenue and East Second Street in the Borough Park section of Brooklyn, and is being investigated as a hate crime.
The members of the Orthodox Jewish community, who gathered outside the 66th Precinct, said that they are happy about the arrests.

After being attacked, the victim managed to escape serious injury and called a Haredi vigilante group known as Shomrim Patrol, who contacted the police.
Officers responded to the scene and arrested the four suspects.
So far, 28-year-old Amrit Marajh of Brooklyn, was charged with aggravated assault as a hate crime, third degree assault as a hate crime, and third degree simple assault.
