jewish man attack 2

NEW YORK (WCBS 880) — There’s a growing sense of alarm in one Brooklyn neighborhood after multiple acts of anti-Semitic violence occurred there over the last week.

On Monday, a Jewish man attempted to cross the street in Crown Heights and was confronted by another man waving around a tree branch.

The seemingly unprovoked assault, and hate crime, happened on Empire Boulevard. The victim was chased and beaten so badly that the branch eventually broke in half. Good Samaritans chased and held the teenage suspect until police arrived.

The attack came a day after another Jewish man was chased and allegedly assaulted by a liver cab driver in Brooklyn.

Both victims needed to be hospitalized for their injuries.
