Brooklyn Teens Subject of Hate Crime Investigation for Harassing 6-Year-Old Jewish Boy
The NYPD Hate Crime Task Force is investigating allegations that three teenagers perpetrated a possible bias incident against a 6-year-old Jewish boy in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, the New York Post reported.
The child was getting into the elevator of his apartment building at Clymer Street and Bedford Avenue at 4 p.m. Wednesday when the three teens harassed him, the police report said.
One snatched the yarmulke off his head and threw it out into the lobby, before all three got off the elevator and fled, according to the police.
Both the NYPD Hate Crime Task Force and Williamsburg’s Shomrim declined to comment further in the on-going investigation.
