4 Boro Park Teens Attacked by Hispanic Thugs Friday Night

Last Friday night, on their way to synagogue, four orthodox teens - two boys and two girls - from Brooklyn's Boro Park neighborhood were attacked by what appears to be local Hispanics, at the corner of 42nd Avenue and Parkway.

Apparently the four were walking when a group of about eight exited a nearby hamburger hangout, and started to shout anti-Semitic epithets at the teens.  The verbal assault quickly escalated into a physical one, injuring all four, and leaving one of boys moderately injured, and who had to be taken to the hospital for treatment.

Police were called in, but by the time they arrived - one hour after the crime was reported - no one was at the scene. The police were called on Saturday night, and a report was filed. A source has reported that Sunday  night the NYPD Hate Crime Task Force had started to look into the matter.
