NY: Arrests Over 'Knockout' Attack on 12 Year-Old Jewish Boy
New York has recently witnessed a spate of anti-Semitic attacks, as part of a wider phenomenon known as the "knockout game," in which gangs of black youths sucker punch innocent passersby - particularly targeting Jews in parts of New York. In response, police have arrested the alleged attacker of a 12 year old Jewish boy who was a victim of the "game."
The suspected attacker, a 13 year old, was charged with third-degree assault and aggravated harassment, reports CBS. He was released to his mother's custody until his appearance in court on Wednesday.
