A teenager is under arrest in connection with a possible anti-Semitic attack.
Police say a 16-year-old is responsible for attacking a man walking down a Williamsburg street wearing religious attire last week. He faces assault and harassment charges.
According to the authorities, the attack happened at Rodney Street and Marcy Avenue. Surveillance video obtained by Williamsburg News shows the 39-year-old victim walking down the street before a young man runs up to him and swings at him from behind.
Police are withholding the suspect's name because he is a minor.
