An Orthodox Jewish man was stabbed multiple times outside his home in New York on Thursday and is now recovering in the hospital, ABC7 News reports.

The 32-year-old victim was stabbed in the driveway of a home on Trailside Place in Ramapo about 8:30 p.m. on Thursday.

The home sits in a predominantly Orthodox community. The victim had just pulled into the driveway when he was confronted by a man with a knife, according to the report.

Before going into surgery, the victim told detectives that he did not recognize the man. The victim is currently stable and is expected to survive.

Ramapo police said a person of interest had been detained for questioning, but that person has since been released from custody pending further investigation.

The motive for the attack is unclear at this time and it is not known whether it was antisemitic in nature. However, New York has seen a spike in antisemitic incidents since the Hamas attack in Israel on October 7 and the was in Gaza which followed.

Last week, the NYPD reported that antisemitic crimes in New York City spiked in March, with 43 incidents in the five boroughs reported to police during that month.

Recent incidents of antisemitism in New York City included two attacks on a kosher restaurant within four days.
