Police: Egg attacks on Jews are hate crimes
Police are investigating a pair of egg attacks aimed at Jewish men as hate crimes.
They say the assailants threw eggs at a 23-year-old Jewish man walking near Fort Hamilton Parkway and 49th Street.
A few minutes later, police say the suspects egged two Jewish teens, 17 and 14, at the intersection of 13th Avenue and 46th Street.
The victims say that their attackers yelled derogatory slurs and made death threats.
Police have recovered surveillance video that they say shows between four and six suspects, and they have the license plate number of the silver BMW used in the attacks.
State Assemblyman Dov Hikind says the three victims are traumatized.
"I wonder about where does this hatred come from?" Hikind asked. "What kind of home that they grew up in? What kind of school do they go to?"
