- New York City police are searching Friday for a man accused of committing what Mayor Bill De Blasio is describing as a “disgusting,” antisemitic act.

The unidentified individual allegedly “grabbed a yarmulke from the head of a male” in Manhattan on Thursday and then made an antisemitic remark and threw it at the 34-year-old victim when he was asked to give it back, according to the NYPD’s Hate Crimes Unit.

The attack happened along West 3rd St. and Broadway in Manhattan around 2 p.m. Thursday, police said.

The attacker and the victim did not know each other, police told the Jewish Press.
