Crown HeightsSerge Attal/FLASH90

A Chabad man was injured in an antisemitic stabbing attack on Friday night in Brooklyn. He was released from the hospital in good condition a few hours after the incident.

The man was asked by the two attackers if he was Jewish. After he answered in the affirmative, they stabbed him in the arm with an undisclosed object. He told a representative of the Jewish community in the Crown Heights neighborhood, Yaacov Behrman, who reported it on social media.

"It is currently being investigated as a hate crime. According to the victim, he was questioned about his Jewish identity. Despite being visibly traumatized, the victim expressed gratitude for not having sustained more severe injuries," wrote Behrman following the attack.

"This incident is deeply concerning, and we have full confidence in the NYPD's ability to conduct a thorough investigation and apprehend the perpetrators," he added.

The Anti-Defamation League confirmed the incident and said that "We are aware of this incident and are reaching out to law enforcement and community partners."
