Dec. 3, 2018 By Laura Hanrahan

Police are searching for a man who punched a Hasidic Jewish man on Friday in the Broadway Triangle area—the second recent attack of a Jewish person in the neighborhood.

Video released by police shows the suspect approaching two men dressed in traditional Hasidic clothing outside of 68 Throop Ave. at 6:40 p.m. on Nov. 30.

The man is then seen punching one of the men in the back of the head and quickly fleeing the scene, running southbound on Throop Avenue.

The 33-year-old victim suffered minor injuries in what police are now investigating as a hate crime.

The Friday attack comes five days after a 9-year-old Jewish boy was repeatedly punched by an unknown assailant just one block away, at the corner of Throop Avenue and Walton Street, according to police.

The suspect in the Nov. 30 attack is described as Hispanic, between 30 to 35 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall and 250 pounds. He was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweater and dark colored jeans.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-8477, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit
