Rabbi testifies about alleged attack

BROOKLYN - A rabbi who claims to have been targeted and attacked by a group of Arab men last week testified before a grand jury Monday at Brooklyn Supreme Court.

Rabbi Uria Ohana says he was standing on a subway platform in Park Slope when a group of Arab men approached him and stole his yarmulke. Ohana says he chased the man with the yarmulke, who police identify as Ali Hussein, up to the streets. According to Ohana, Hussein was hit by a car when he ran into the street.

Ohana claims to have suffered injuries during the incident.

Police say they've arrested Hussein for aggravated harassment and are looking for the other suspects.
