Hasidic Jews chased and punched in series of attacks in Brooklyn’s Borough Park

Borough Park, Brooklyn, NY - Several identifiably Jewish men and boys were attacked in a string of assaults in the Borough Park community of Brooklyn on the same night.

Three of the attacks late Friday night involved the same passenger car over five blocks, the Yeshiva World News reported.

Surveillance cameras captured each incident, in which several men jump out of the car and chase Hasidic men and boys. In one incident, the passengers punched a Hasidic man after their vehicle pinned him against a parked car. Victims also were punched in two other incidents.

The victims are hesitant to file reports with the New York Police Department since suspects often are charged only with harassment.
