Antisemitic attack at Rego Park

The suspect running away from the synagogue

Rego Park, Flushing, NY
- Just days after a Forest Hills man was arrested for allegedly scrawling antisemitic graffiti on the Rego Park Jewish Center, another man was assaulted in the area.

A 56-year-old Rego Park resident was on his way to a local synagogue for evening prayer services just before 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 17, when he was confronted by a 35-year-old man in front of the Neighborhood Chemists Pharmacy at 66-02 99th St.

The assailant launched into an antisemitic tirade before allegedly kicking the victim, according to authorities. A formal report was filed at the 112th Precinct and the NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force opened an investigation into the attack.
