Crown Heights Shomrim released a video of the Sunday night assault where two young Jewish boys were targeted in Crown Heights, along with a picture of the perpetrators.
The attack took place on Albany Ave. around 6:00 PM Sunday evening, when four black males approached the two boys, both under bar mitzvah, and attacked them.
The video shows the attackers walking up to the boys and punching them for no apparent reason. The victim staggers and nearly falls to the ground before catching his balance.
The perps then turn around and attack the boys again.
Thankfully, neither victim was seriously injured. A police report was filed and the NYPD, along with Crown Heights Shomrim are on the lookout for the perps.
Later that night, Shomrim received multiple reports describing the same group harassing other members of the Crown Heights Orthodox Jewish community, including a husband and wife, and a woman walking alone. None of the other incidents involved a physical assault.
