2 suspects sought for slapping man, woman; deemed a hate crime assault
Police are looking for two people behind back-to-back hate crimes that happened this week in Brooklyn.
The NYPD is trying to find the two people seen using a Citi bike, although photos do not show their faces.
Police say they were riding on Wallabout Street in South Williamsburg Thursday night when the woman on the front of the bike slapped a man wearing traditional Jewish attire.
Immediately after that, they did the same thing to a woman who was also wearing Jewish clothing.
Both victims were OK.
The NYPD says it is treating the situation as a hate crime assault.
Police are asking anyone with information to contact them.
