    Brooklyn Shliach Assaulted by Teens

    A Brooklyn Heights rabbi says he is lucky to get away unscathed after a group of teenagers assaulted and tried to rob him.

    Rabbi Aaron Raskin says the attack happened on the corner of Hicks and Joralemon streets Sunday night. He says he was walking home and talking on the phone when one of the assailants hit the phone from his hand.

    He looked up to see a group of teens laughing before they took off. Raskin found his phone on the ground and called 911.

    Police found the teens in short time. A 15-year-old boy was arrested and charged with grand larceny.

    On Friday, Raskin says he will hold a rally in front of the Congregation B’Nai Avraham to send a message that the community is standing up against senseless violence.

      With all due respect,- no really, but shouldn’t if anything, that be an assault, or maybe a hate crime? It’s called a grand larceny? What did he steal?

      Sorry to hear.
      Let’s start inculcating uncivilized America to
      observe ‘The 7 Noahide Laws.’
      Obviously the criminals do NOT fear G-d so
      they must fear the law..which they do not.
      Too much money in crime…witness the
      growth of our criminal justice system. Who’s
      profitiing?: lawyers, judges, clerks, cops, etc.
