Bochur Punched in Face by Teen Gang

A Bochur was assaulted by three black teenagers Monday night, right outside the Oholai Torah Mesivta. The Bochur received minor injuries and was treated by Hatzolah. One of the assailants was taken into police custody.

The incident occurred around 9:40pm on Troy Ave between Empire Blvd and Montgomery St. Three black teenagers got into a verbal altercation with bochurim from Oholai Torah Mesivta, and sucker punched one of the bochurim in the face. The three teenagers then fled towards Montgomery St while Shomrim was called.

Shomrim volunteers arrived in seconds and caught one of the perpetrators nearby on Troy Ave, while the other two were caught around the corner on Montgomery St. The police were called, and placed one of the assailants in custody.

The injured Bochur was taken to the 71st Precinct where he was seen by Hatzolah, and filed a report.

    WE ARE LUCKY THIS DOESN’T HAPPEN EVEN MORE OFTEN. THERE ARE NO CONSEQUENCES IF THEY’RE CAUGHT, AND THE FEW TIMES THEY ARE,THEY ARE UNDER AGE, THEY ARE LET OUT, NOT CONSIDERED A HATE CRIME, AND THE LIKE. THERE IS NO FEAR AT ALL. NO ONE TAKES RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR ACTIONS. MOTHER? FATHER? ANYBODY HOME?

    It’s the Hassidics fault it came to this. The Jewish boys should have invited the black kids inside to dance with the Torah and study some talmud. In addition, had the yeshiva boys just assumed the black kids were Jewish just like them, the reaction would have been different.
    I can’t believe how racist the Crown Heights Hassdic community is. I bet if the attacker was a white Jewish kid, they would have asked for another punch, instead of calling Shomrim and the police.

    The Jewish kids are guilty of using the ‘M’ word (Mother) in front of a black kid. Everyone knows not to do that, even if you’re referring to your own ‘M’ word.

    Sincerely,
    A Delusional Progressive Liberal Jew.

    This is just my opinion ….. YOU need to set boundaries for their behavior AND EVERY time something happens to a fellow Jew you need to set an example to one of these folk

    He came with shchuna insiders as well, you are splitting hairs. Also this ‘neighborhood insiders vs outsiders’ thing is nonesense. Blame your own askonim.

    If elected officials won’t protect us from these blatantly anti-Semitic attacks, we have to protect ourselves. If the perps always walk, we should be creating a watchlist and publicizing their names/pictures online and around the neighborhood so people know who they are and what to expect.

    These attacks have been going on for months (and years) on end without consequence.
