A 14-year-old boy was punched and cursed at outside of a yeshiva and high school in Queens, New York.

The attack on Sunday evening occurred outside the Yeshivath Shaar Hatorah Grodno, the Forest Hills Post reported.

A man punched the teen in the face and called him a “Jew boy,” the local newspaper reported, citing police. It was not reported whether the teen was a student at the yeshiva.

The incident is being investigated as a bias incident by the NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force.

The Forest Hills Post also reported police are searching for a man who broke into the school four times between November and April, stealing hundreds of dollars of cash, change and electronics.
