Victim Jumped On Way Home From Synagogue, Told 'You Don’t Need Help. I’m Going To Kill You Right Here'

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — There have been two recent attacks against Orthodox Jewish men in Brooklyn.

In the latest one, the victim was approached by a stranger and choked on the street, CBS2’s Natalie Duddridge reported Sunday night.

Surveillance video shows the suspect running down the street and tackling another man. He then forces him against a fence, choking and punching him.

The victim, an Orthodox Jewish man, was left with a black eye, a broken rib and scratches on his neck and back. He didn’t want to give his name, but he said he was walking home from his synagogue on Saturday afternoon near Rutland Road and Schenectady Avenue when he said hi to a stranger who then got very angry.

“I turned around and I see that he’s right behind me and he jumped me. And then he said ‘I hate Jews,'” the victim said. “I greeted him hello. Next thing I know he said ‘I don’t like Jews. Who were you talking to?’ He put me in a headlock and I’m trying to maneuver out of him. In the meantime, I’m screaming ‘Help! Help! Help! Help!’ He says, ‘You don’t need help. I’m going to kill you right here.'”

Luckily, two people passing by minutes later pulled the suspect off and held him back, helping the victim escape.

The video shows the victim going into a neighbor’s yard to retrieve his hat and glasses. The suspect continues to stalk him as the two good Samaritans keep him back.

“Two nurses came. Medical, wearing white. Male and female,” the victim said.

Since the assault police have been monitoring the neighborhood. The victim’s family said despite the increased security they’re now scared to go out on the street.

“There’s fear. There’s a lot of fear. The thing we know is that, unfortunately, there are people out there who want to kill us for one reason — because we are a Jew,” the victim’s wife said.

This is the second time this week a Jewish man has been targeted. An April 14, a 42-year-old man was assaulted on the 600 block of Eastern Parkway just after midnight, punched in the face repeatedly. The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Unit is investigating both incidents. It has yet to determine if the attacks are connected.

The Anti-Defamation League is offering a $5,000 reward for any information leading to the arrests of the individuals responsible.

  1. This attack is a hoax.

    Ask yourself: who recorded this?
    You can see the camera moves so it wasn’t CCTV. A CCTV camera would stay fixed in place. It had to be a person holding a camera.
    So we have some guy who just happened be recording out his window (why?) at the exact precise moment when this guy was attacked. What good fortune.

    This attack was staged.

    1. John Douglas says:

      The camera is moving because the person holding the camera is recording a screen playing back a recording not the actual event.

  2. Dear Brothers, no need to worry, it was the ‘other Jew’ that was attacked. We good loyal liberal Democrats are safe and cozy in our little Leftist bubble, we can breathe a sigh of relief.

  3. David Markun says:

    Sad that Jews are being attacked here and Europe and instead of fighting back they turn for protection to corrupt governments. Jews should teach self defense to their young, buy hand guns and rifles, and begin to prepare for worse developments. Meier Kahane knew this and was murdered for his beliefs.

  4. AC Inoc says:

    Democrats killing democrats… pretty standard stuff right?

  5. Welcome to the City of Sodom and De Blasio.

  6. No descriptions of the suspects provided. Wonder why.

  7. Samuel Green says:

    New York is a criminals wet dream. NY banned less than lethal pepper spray, they banned non lethal tasers, and getting a concealed permit to carry a sidearm is next to impossible.

    After my military career I moved from New England as it’s gun laws are illegal. A couple years after moving a home invader paid me a visit. Being able to defend myself ruined his day.

    You have naive children like David Hogg, who’s the worlds biggest hypocrite being that there are firearms in their family home. With his dad being ex Fbi and all…..

    We don’t let children dictate constitutional law, as all teens think they know everything, if that want the case the voting age wouldn’t be 18. When this naive child turns 18, he can vote, until then, he should zip his naive potty mouth.

  8. Muslims attacking Jews has been happening for thousands of years since Abraham, Hagar, and Ishmael. However this attacker must be punished, and cannot be allowed to continue in civilized society.

    Wonderful city Commissar De blasio is running.

  10. If you don’t stand up for innocent people now, nobody will be standing up for you when it’s your turn.

    New Babylon is evolving closer and closer to old Babylon.

  11. muslim vs jew, this has been a war for 1000s of years

  12. Guy Joubert says:

    uncivilized muzzie malcontent no doubt

  13. Dan Stetson says:

    No description? Why is that? Because we already know?

  14. In the name of safety time to build a wall just for these victims so that the IDF can snipe and gas everyone else! Safety is too important to ignore. #neverforget!

  15. Jay Jones says:

    mohammad, was that you in this video???

  16. Description of the suspect? It would help to give a description.
    Should we just assume?

    1. John Oakman says:

      JUst an attack by a member of the jewist Protected species.

      1. The best part of you ran down the back of your moms leg, may you burn in a hypothetical Hades for eternity.

    2. The Left-Wing/Democrat Judges on the Federal Bench refuse to let Trump deal with the illegal immigration problem. They keep overturning his Executive Orders but had no problem when Obama used Executive Orders to allow illegals to swamp the Country.

  17. Playing the knockout game is part of the thug’s culture culture.

  18. tonyome says:

    Another negro – what a shock.

  19. No description of the perp.
