Brooklyn and Queens, NY – Police are searching for people who committed antisemitic attacks in Brooklyn and Queens, cops said Thursday.
In the most recent incident, a group of almost a dozen people verbally harassed and threw eggs at a Jewish teenager in Brooklyn.
The 15-year old was walking on E. 18th St. near Bay Ave. in Midwood dressed in traditional Jewish clothing when the hateful crew of about 11 people approached him around 1:05 p.m. Monday, cops said.
The group screamed, “Free Palestine!” before hurling eggs at the boy, hitting him in the back and shoulders, according to cops.
The mob ran westbound on nearby Chestnut Ave. toward E. 15th St., police said.
The teen was not hurt in the attack.
On Oct. 20, another Jewish person was harassed and threatened in a Queens strip mall, police said.
The 19-year-old man was approached by a person in the mall on 26th Ave. in Bay Terrace around 9 p.m., cops said.
The individual spewed hateful rhetoric at the victim and threatened to shoot him, cops said.
The person ran off without hurting the man.
Police on Thursday released images of some of those involved in the incidents and are asking the public’s help in identifying them.
