Police: Man makes hateful comments, assaults 18-year-old Jewish man in Bed-Stuy
Police are searching for a man they say allegedly made hateful comments before assaulting an 18-year-old man in traditional Jewish garb in Bed-Stuy on Thursday.
Police say the man walked up to the teen and said, "I am going to get rid of all you Jews," before attempting to punch him.
At first, he missed and then proceeded to push the victim to the ground before taking off.
The teen was not physically hurt.
The NYPD Hate Crimes Unit is actively investigating the incident.
