Lubavitcher Man Stabbed in Crown Heights

A Lubavitcher man in his 30s was stabbed in the back by an African-American man on the corner of Empire Blvd. and Kingston Avenue in Crown Heights. The attacker fled the scene and is at large. The public is asked to please say Tehillim for Yehuda Leib ben Rivkah Alta.

No words were exchanged between the attacker and his victim. The victim said the two crossed paths while walking along Empire Blvd., and he suddenly felt a sharp pain in his back. He quickly realized he had been stabbed in his upper right back.

The victim was transported by Hatzalah to Kings County Hospital. He never lost consciousness, and his condition is believed to be non-life-threatening.

Please say Tehillim for Yehuda Leib ben Rivkah Alta.

This is the second unprovoked stabbing incident to target a Jewish man in Crown Heights in the past year. About three months ago, a Hatzalah volunteer was stabbed by an unidentified assailant while jogging along Eastern Parkway.

    Please remove the main image of this story or at least move it to the extended part with a warning. It is very graphic and traumatic and should not be in full view like that.

    Let’s not forget the stabbing of the bochur in 770!

    I hope the police catch the black criminal.
    There must be surveillance cameras on that street.

    African American is a national origin. Black is a race. Unless you’re talking about his ancestry instead of his skin color, it’s perfectly acceptable to call him black.

      Best case scenario, if we rally. There will continue to be a large police presence in CH for a week instead of a day.
      We (Lubavitch) need to be vigilant, and we need to start training our young to protect themselves.

    Stop ignoring the fact that the rate of violent crime among black people is much higher than among anyone else, and at least an order of magnitude higher than among Jews.

      On a positive note: Even though The fight for Sh’Lemus Ha’Aretz seems overwhelming. We need to remember what it was like to fight for Yiddishkeit in the Former Soviet Union (the 2nd most powerful country in the world).

      And with the Rebbe’s brochos & guidance we won. & now the Soviet Union only exists in history books.

    It is bad enough that he got stabbed. Why must these photos be plastered on the web for all to see? Give the guy some privacy. If it was you being taken to the ambulance you would want the same

    When were elections for community council held last?
    Was it four years ago or five years ago?
    Isn’t it meant to be a three year term???
    Perhaps some new people in the council would do better then the ones which we have now.

    DeBlasio is the one to blame – he gave these criminals the right to do whatever they feel like. He will always defend them

    Is it being investigated as a hate crime? There may be muggings and knockouts and sexual assaults, but as far as I know no one is stabbing Jews except Muslims.

    The main thing here is for the young man who was stabbed, to have a fast and painless recovery.
    The police are all over CH now flashing lights on most corners. Do they think this helps us? Give it 2 days tops, and they will go back to the donut shop, Starbucks, or even Dunkin donuts.

    WE MUST COME TOGETHER AS A COMMUNITY if not with guns then with bats, sticks, and anything usefull in putting THEM in the hospital and not us!

    Please come to the community board 9 meetings to help prevent an eight story building for the seriously mentally ill with possible drug addictions from going up on East New York Ave between Utica and Schenectady. There are many new Jewish families who live there and attend Kingsbrook Jewish Shul. The meetings are the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm. I have been fighting this proposed project for two years. My thoughts and prayers go out to the injured young man.
