A man was arrested Thursday morning after he pointed a handgun at a Jewish man in the Borough Park neighborhood of Brooklyn, Yeshiva World News reported.
The Borough Park Shomrim received a call from the man who was threatened and notified the NYPD of the incident. The Shomrim followed the suspect until police arrived to arrest him.
The suspect is reportedly a Hispanic man in his 40s.
The NYPD Hate Crimes Unit has been requested to investigate the incident as a possible hate crime.
The incident comes two days after four people, including two hasidic Jews, were murdered in a suspected anti-Semitic shooting attack at a kosher supermarket in Jersey City, New Jersey.
