A group of teenagers violently attacked and assaulted two Jewish teenagers in Crown Heights, leaving one of them with a bloody nose.
The brutal assault occurred Monday night near the corner of Albany Ave and Carroll Street at around 9:15 pm, when the two Jewish teenagers are attacked from behind by a group of 5 young black men.
Crown Heights Shomrim received multiple calls from witnesses reporting the attack and quickly dispatched multiple units to the scene of the attack. Shomrim volunteers followed the attackers as they fled on Albany Ave. toward Eastern Parkway.
Shomrim kept an eye on the perps following them as they entered an apartment building on St. Johns Place and waited for the Police to arrive. Unfortunately, by then the perps had already disappeared inside the building.
Crown Heights Shomrim assisted the victims in filing the Police report and turned over video of the assault to the NYPD. “We are working with the victims and police to ensure that these perpetrators are caught,” Shomrim wrote on Twitter.
Hatzalah transported the victim to the hospital where he was treated for a broken nose.
