A masked teen gang attacked a Jewish man in Crown Heights, throwing an object at him, according to Collive.

The incident took place on Sunday evening. Four teenagers accosted the Jewish victim and threw what the report described as an “object” at him. No further details were given about the object.

The incident took place at around 6 p.m. in the Crown Street and Albany Avenue area of the Crown Heights section of Brooklyn.

The local Shomrim were immediately contacted. Their volunteer patrol began to comb the area but the assailants had already left the vicinity, according to the report.

Only days earlier, a group of teens physically attacked a Jewish woman shopping in Crown Heights.

The woman was randomly assaulted by the three teens as she entered a Crown Heights store on Wednesday afternoon.

At around 3:30 p.m. the woman walked into the store at which point she was slapped in an unprovoked attack by one of the teens. The teens then began to laugh and ran away.

The two most recent incidents follow a disturbing pattern of antisemitic assaults taking place in Brooklyn, with many occurring in Crown Heights.

Earlier in the month, a Hasidic pedestrian was hit by a vehicle while attempting to cross the street in Crown Heights. The injury was deemed a possible bias incident, and the NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force opened an investigation.

In July, an arrest was made after the brutal assault of an Orthodox man in Crown Heights earlier in the month who was beaten in front of his five-year old child.

In March, a Jewish man was repeatedly hit in the head by man wielding metal cane in an apparent hate crime attack.

According to, the victim was picking up his niece in the Crown Heights area shortly after 7 a.m. When he stopped his car to get his niece, the assailant walked up to his car and hit it with a metal cane multiple times.

Last January, a 21-year old visibly Jewish man was punched in the nose by a man who crossed the street and attacked him. The incident was investigated by the NYPD Hate Crimes Unit.

The assault came only a week after a 21-year old woman allegedly told Jewish siblings playing outside, aged seven and two, that “Hitler should have killed you all” and then spit on their eight-year old brother.
