WILLIAMSBURG - A man was assaulted last night in Williamsburg in what may be Brooklyn's 11th 'knockout' assault in the past two months.
The alleged assault happened at around 9:30 p.m. last night on Wilson Street. The NYPD confirms the victim was struck in the forehead by a woman, who then fled the scene. Williamsburg community leader Isaac Abraham says the victim was a 26-year-old Hasidic man.
Some residents have asked for extra reinforcement from the police to help patrol the neighborhood.
