Two Jewish men were left bloody and lying on the floor, after a violent gang viciously attacked them in two separate incidents in the Crown Heights.
The first attack occurred just after 1:00AM on President Street near Albany Avenue.
Just a few minutes later, the gang targeted a second man. The second victim was younger, and put up a fight, screaming for help and struggling with them.
Witnesses and victims immediately called 911 and Crown Heights Shomrim, who were boththere in moments.
As they canvassed the area looking for the gang, a group matching the description of the gang was located on Crown St and Troy Ave.When the NYPD stopped the group, they attempted to flee.Two were caught, while the third got away.
Shomrim, working with the police, were able to bring both victims to the 71st precinct where they positively identified their attackers.
No words were spoken during the beatings, and the gang did not attempt to take any belongings from the victims.
Video footage of one of the assaults was obtained by Crown Heights Shomrim.
NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force will be investigating the assaults.
