Two Brooklyn men were arrested and a third is still on the loose after the vicious beating of a 51-year-old Jewish man that was caught on camera.
The incident occurred on President Street around 1 a.m.
Video shows one of three attackers slamming the man to the ground just before the two others start punching and kicking him.
Navar Walters, 18, and Teshon Bannister, 21, were charged with a hate crime assault.
Police say the victim was taken to the hospital and is expected to be OK.
Eli Cohen, the executive director of the Crown Heights Jewish Community Council, and many others are calling on the city to help keep the community safe.
“I think we need another level of patrolling over here," he told News 12.
Authorities are asking anyone with information about the third suspect to call the police.
