    Police busted a man Friday on charges he attacked an Orthodox resident of Brooklyn, sources said.

    Members of an NYPD Warrant Squad grabbed suspect James Vincent, 40, following an appearance in Brooklyn criminal court on an unrelated case Friday morning and brought him to the 71st Precinct.

    After putting him through several line-ups, cops charged him with strangulation, assault and unlawful possession of marijuana for his attack on Menachem Moskowitz in Crown Heights.

    Moskowitz, a 52-year-old father of nine, was returning home from a prayer service about 1:30 p.m. on April 21 when he walked past Vincent, who was smoking a cigar on E. 46th St. at Rutland Road.

    When Moskowitz waved at him, Vincent went ballistic, the victim said.

    “Next thing I know, he started yelling: ‘I don’t say hello to fake Jews. Who did you say hello to?'” Moskowitz told the Daily News Tuesday.

    Things escalated when the Jewish man was just a block from his home. Vincent ran up to Moskowitz from behind and put him in a chokehold.

    “He started grabbing me, trying to choke me,” the victim recalled. “He said, ‘You stole my money! I gotta kill you!’ ”

    It was the second attack in a week against a Jewish man in the Orthodox neighborhood, cops said.

    Moskowitz suffered fractured ribs and a black left eye during the attack.

    The NYPD released a photo Tuesday of Moskowitz’s attacker in the hope someone would recognize him.

    Vincent’s name came up as detectives scoured the area looking for information, police sources said.

    “I’m scared to leave my house now,” said Moskowitz. “My children are scared, too. I was thinking about my kids, my whole life. I thought I was going to die. I started to say my last prayer.”
