    New York State Assemblyman Dov Hikind (D-Brooklyn) says the Jewish community is in a state of shock and fear following an unprovoked, vicious attack on a 50-year-old man walking home from prayers on the Sabbath. A reward of $50,000 for information leading to the apprehension of the suspect has been offered by a noted philanthropist from Los Angeles.

    “There’s one violent incident after another; one attack after another—always on innocent, vulnerable members of the Jewish community, and always with a racist, anti-Semitic message,” said Assemblyman Hikind. “The Crown Heights community feels like they are under siege and this has to stop immediately. The police must increase their protection of these innocent people.”

    The attack occurred on Saturday, April 21, at around 1:30 p.m. on Rutland Road near Schenectady Avenue in the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn. The victim, a resident of the community for three years, was taken to Kingsbrook Jewish Hospital after suffering a cracked rib along with bruising and scratches across his body. The assailant remains at large. He was described by the victim as tall and muscular African American, in his 40s, with a small beard.

    The victim said he only said good afternoon to the man who then told him, “You fake Jews, who are you saying hello to? You’re fake Jews and you stole all my money and robbed me and stole my mortgage and my house. I want to kill you!” After being chased and caught, the victim was put in a choke hold and began to pass out when the attack was broken up by two passersby.

    This is the second week in a row that a hate crime occurred in Crown Heights. Last weekend, a 42-year-old Jewish man visiting Crown Heights was attacked on Eastern Parkway.

    “Will Brooklyn become like Paris now?” asked Assemblyman Hikind. “Will we start seeing people attacked with racial slurs on a regular basis? Do Jews here really have to fear for their lives from criminal thugs? We need a strong and immediate response to these hate crimes, and I won’t rest while this continues!”
