Three young girls captured on camera harassing and then assaulting two young Jewish girls were apprehended by police on Wednesday, CrownHeights.info reported.

Having received several tips, members of the Shomrim volunteer patrol “staked out” a bus stop the three girls were known to frequent. According to CrownHeights.info, the three girls, ages 11-12, all appeared at the stop  at 3:30pm. Shomrim then contacted Detective Hector Marin from the NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force, who asked Shomrim to follow the bus and make sure the suspects stayed on board until police arrived on scene.

One of the suspects exited the bus not long after and was caught by police. She then fingered her two friends and all three were taken into custody.

Two of the girls were released into the custody of their parents while the third one – who is seen in the video choking her victim – was charged with a hate crime and was arrested.

Another woman came forward after recognizing the girls in the video and said she too had been harassed by them in a prior incident.

Shomrim Volunteer Gadi Hershkop told The Algemeiner that everybody involved was pleased with the outcome.

“We basically took care of this whole case from A to Z. We went to the original location, we got the video–we helped out the detectives and worked with them closely. It was a very good team, everyone cooperated and it worked out for the best,” he said.

    Though nothing will happen to those little beasties – after all the judicial system embraces the social philosophy that they are not responsible for their actions – at least they were arrested. In Israel where Arab youth regularly hurl deadly rocks at Jews going about their business, the IDF refuses to do anything. Now one has to wonder which state provides Jews with better protection.

  • These girls are still babies, this kind of world view is passed down from their parents!

    Instead of giving a yearly party with tons and tons of food etc to foster good relations, the JEWS should have cordoned off their section of Crown Heights. How stupid do we Jews have to be to reward those who hate us? So, Yankel Rosenbaum was stabbed by one of these trashies, and we Jews reward them? STOP THE PARTY NOW.

      Great idea! The Jews of Venice had the same idea about 600 years ago. Because of anti-Jewish attacks, they petitioned authorities for the right to move their community behind walls, finally settling on an abandoned arms factory called “il Ghetto”. It must have worked pretty well, because soon all the kings and princes of Europe were moving their local Jews into “ghettos” of their own. Good thinking. Let’s all emulate those Venetian Jews and hide ourselves away behind strong walls and stout gates – nothing bad could come out of that, right?

    ‎Kosher Lust: Love is Not the Answer (REVIEW)

    Kosher Lust, by Shmuley Boteach (Gefen Publishing House, 2014). You really do want to find something positive to say about Shmuley Boteach. He is a phenomenon; very bright, an articulate bundle of energy and self-promotion. Anyone who has the chutzpah to describe himself as “America’s Rabbi” deserves ten out of ten for effort. I believe that along with most Chabad alumni, official and unofficial, he does a lot of good and is a sort of national treasure. In this world [...]

    JNS.org – In a throwback to the golden age of cinema, Hollywood has declared 2014 the “Year of the Bible.” From Ridley Scott’s Exodus starring Christian Bale as Moses, to Russell Crowe playing Noah, Hollywood is gambling on new innovations in technology and star power to revisit some of the most popular stories ever told. “It’s definitely a throwback to the 1950s and early ’60s,” Dr. Stephen J. Whitfield, an American Studies professor at Brandeis University, told JNS.org. Starting with The [...]

    Darren Aronofsky Adds Psychological Depth, Little Else to ‘Noah’

    JNS.org – Has the era of large-scale biblical epics returned? Not since “The Ten Commandments” has there been so much torrential water on the big screen (not counting weather-related disaster films such as “The Impossible”) than in “Noah,” the latest blockbuster from writer and director Darren Aronofsky. “Noah” takes the traditional tale and splices it in an eco-friendly and psychologically driven plot. After Adam and Eve got booted out of the Garden of Eden and after Cain killed Abel, mankind [...]
