JNS.org – An Orthodox Jewish man was beaten and subjected to anti-Semitic insults in Brooklyn on Tuesday.

The victim, 53, was waiting for a train in the Williamsburg neighborhood when one of three suspects approached him and tried to steal something from his pocket. When the victim turned around and caught the thief, he was called a “dirty bloody Jew,” according to police, the New York Daily News reported.

The suspect attacker then spit at the victim, grabbed his umbrella, and used it to hit the victim on the head before fleeing the scene. The victim pursued his attacker, but was then assaulted by a second suspect from behind, who called him a a “f***ing Jew” and kicked him several times. A bystander who tried to intervene was also attacked before the suspects fled onto a train.

The New York Police Department’s Hate Crime Task Force is investigating the assault.
