NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The NYPD is looking for three men they say are suspected of beating a 51-year-old Orthodox Jewish man and yelling anti-Semitic slurs at him in Brooklyn.

Police said it happened on July 11 around 3 p.m. when a 911 caller reported an assault in front of 2525 Kings Highway, near East 27th Street.

When officers arrived, according to the NYPD, they learned the victim was walking home when three unidentified men in a car stopped beside him and started shouting anti-Semitic slurs.

Police said the victim responded, before the men got out of the car, pushed him to the ground and punched him repeatedly.

The victim was able to walk to Community Hospital, where he received stitches on his face and was treated for a broken finger.

Police said they’re looking for three men approximately 18 to 20 years old.

The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating.

Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). You can also submit a tip via their website or on Twitter, @NYPDTips. All calls are kept confidential.

    Hmm.. Nice description of the suspects, and good luck catching them. Curious why you didn’t mention their ethnicity. I can assume that if they were “white” you would have mentioned it.
    Perhaps you really don’t want them caught. Anything to add?

    Just heard about it here. How come nothing on ABC or CNN news? The bias is disgusting,

      It’s okay, it’s okay! It was just some innocent a diverse Democrat-voting cardio-enthusiasts attacking “fellow white people.” You juden are white, aren’t you? I mean you tell us how you’re “fellow white people” daily, when you’re subverting and attacking white people online. And you juden do say it’s perfectly acceptable, actually openly encouraged, to hate and attack white people. Every single day.

      Whoopsie! Maybe you should have picked a better disguise, Moshie!

    What is the description of the “three men”? Is that the only lead, that they are men and three of them.

    1. virtualcolumbus says:

      I’m guessing they like to jog. Joggers have a huge problem with “fellow white people.”

    This is the fault of white people. Economically disenfranchised urban youth who enrich us with a richly textured diversity that is our greatest strength are the real victims here. By inculcating systemic white supremacy, vulnerable at-risk individuals are liable to learn and mirror the behaviors of their oppressors; notice the parallels between the actions here and the NAZIS who persecuted Jewish people leading to 6,0000,000 dead during the holocaust. To end racial violence, we must end whiteness. I do not want to hear fragile people who disagree, educate yourself and thank me later for the knowledge.

      You are right on Sarah (AOC and Talib) LOL

      Oh please. How many ethnicities in NYC & in the country, have been economically disenfranchised? ALL!! Some have moved on. Some have cherished education and learning as a way to have better lives, and also just revere it for its own sake. If your own culture doesn’t ,don’t blame anyone else.

    May be time for a return of the JDL…..on steroids this go ’round.

  8. T Bob Rorschach says:

    Did they throw pennies at his toes? I hear that’s the certified standard for an anti-semitic attack!

  9. Homey says:

    Maybe not a great lead, but I saw 3 guys in a car here in Dallas. Seems to match the description.

  10. John Winston says:

    Most likely African-American and should be charged with Hate Crime

  11. Joe Walker says:

    Descriptions of suspects are racist.

  12. Ezekiel Shalom Goldenstein says:

    Golems turning on their master?

  13. Jean Vallee says:

    No description of suspects.
    Now why is that?

    1. CECrews says:

      And why do you suppose that is? Let’s sing along now…..Maybe this’ll help.
