An Orthodox Jewish man was attacked by an anti-Semitic man in broad daylight while walking in midtown Manhattan, jpupdates.com reported.
The young man of the Flatbush neighborhood, said that he was the victim of a possible hate crime on Wednesday, while walking in New York City.
The incident unfolded on Second Avenue and East 14th Street, when a man approached him around 3:30 p.m. and said: “I f***ing hate you. I should punch you in the mouth because you are a Jew.”
The victim immediately called the New York Police Department, to report the incident. The local police station notified the NYPD Hate Crime Task Force Unit.
So far, no arrests have been made. Earlier this week, Hasidic schools in London, England, warned parents not to allow their children to walk alone in the streets after several incidents of anti-Semitic assaults.
On Sunday, an 11-year-old boy who was on his way to the Satmar school, was beaten.
The boy arrived at school crying and shaken, and told his teacher that he was attacked by a stranger who yelled anti-Jewish epithets.
Shortly after 8:00 a.m., a vehicle stopped at the entrance of the Belz school and the driver asked one of the students for directions.
He asked the boy to accompany him, but the boy refused and ran away. In the afternoon, an ultra-Orthodox Jewish woman was attacked.
The suspect choked her while screaming: “We have to kill all the Jews as they kill Palestinians.” Police increased the number of patrols in the neighborhood.
