Jewish Woman Accosted, Wig Pulled Off

A Jewish woman was suddenly and unprovokedly accosted by woman who grabbed her wig off her head and shouted an anti-Semitic expletive at her, while she was walking on Eastern Parkway.

The incident occurred on Monday afternoon at around 2:30pm on Eastern Parkway near Albany Avenue. The victim, a 62-year-old Jewish woman, was accosted by a woman who grabbed and pulled off her wig while yelling expletives at her.

“You f***ing Jew” she yelled, in a completely unprovoked attack, then pulled her wig off and walked away with it.

The victim, who cannot see very well, walked into the police precinct a while later to report the crime but could not provide specific details about the perpetrator. “I was walking and suddenly she was standing in front of me and yelling” the victim said, describing the attacker as a woman but unable to provide other details.

“The incident is being treated as a possible bias crime and will be investigated by the hate crimes task force” a police source said, adding that a search for surveillance footage is currently ongoing. Shomrim volunteers were seen assisting in the search.

      These left wingers WILL blame Trump… he created a climate of hate. Just wait.

      Personally, I think PETA will blame Kappores.

    If it’s being investigated by the hate crimes task force then why is the police calling it a “bias crime”? I’m biased towards blue. So I think I’ll attack someone who is wearing orange. This poor soul was assaulted for being a Jew. It is obviously a hate crime.

      What are you on about? A bias crime is a hate crime. They’re both awful terms for a crime motivated by one of a list of specified reasons.

    If the victim was a Muslim women, and the attacker pulled off her Hijab, it would be all over the news.

    why don’t their leaders do something, like help them, talk with them, help them get a life. hate seeps in when there is emptiness or need. as I said, their leaders need to do something to help them get a life.
    there is a non jewish family on the next block from us who has meetings to help others, and whatever. These people need to be useful and have a life

      Why don’t OUR “leaders” do something to protect our community from these thugs? If there isn’t a press opportunity, they don’t do squat.

      The only one I ever saw who actually tried to help this neighborhood without fanfare was Berel Sugar & I think he got burned out & disillusioned. We need people with his determination and humility who aren’t looking for a photo shoot.

      FTR I am not related to Mr. Sugar in any way & I am certain he wouldn’t know who I am.

    It says this hooligan left WITH this lady’s shaitel. That is a theft of hundreds to thousands of dollars. I doubt she has that kind of money laying around. Why don’t we make a gofundme so she can buy a new shaitel?
