Midwood, Brooklyn, NY
- Two Jewish teens were assaulted in Brooklyn Saturday evening by a group of people who demanded the victims yell antisemitic statements, police said Sunday.

The 17-year-old and 18-year-old victims were walking on Ocean Avenue, near Albemarle Road in Midwood, around 7:45 p.m. when they were surrounded by a mob of people, according to authorities.

The suspects demanded the victims chant and yell antisemitic statements and then beat them when they refused, police said. The teens were repeatedly punched in the head and one of the suspects put the 17-year-old in a chokehold, according to police.

The suspects then chased the teens with a bat but the victims got away. They reported the incident to police and were treated for injuries at the 66th Precinct, according to the NYPD.
