A student from Israel, was shocked when he was sucker punched by a group of black men in Brooklyn, New York.
Israel Blizovsky, 19, of Be’er Sheva, was visiting the United States, when he fell victim to the horrific Knockout Game.
The Knockout Game has been terrorizing U.S. Jewish communities especially those in Brooklyn, New York.
The aim of the Knockout Game is to surprise an unsuspecting victim with a punch, thus knocking them out.
The heroes of the game are those who manage to hit the victim so hard that the person is knocked to the ground and unable to respond after just one punch.
Unfortunately, most of the victims are Jews, some of which were elderly Jewish women.
Blizovsky spoke of his scary episode which took place in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn. "It was a big blow, I went into shock," he said.
"I saw a large group of dark-skinned men, I tried to walk on the sidewalk and let them pass, but as they passed me I suddenly felt a blow to my face," Blizovsky said.
The victim said that after being hit, the group kept walking, while laughing.
“They said something right after they hit me, but I did not understand what they said because I do not speak English very well. It seemed that they were making fun of me,” Blizovsky said.
Blizovsky, who weighs about 95 pounds and is 5 foot 2, suffered a chipped tooth as a result of the incident. He returned to Israel after the incident.
