NYPD Chief of Department Rodney Harrison and Chief of Brooklyn South Michael Kemper arrived Tuesday evening and met with the volunteers of Crown Heights Shomrim.

“We will not tolerate any hate crime in New York City,” Harrison was quoted by Hamodia as saying. “We’re going to investigate this case thoroughly. We have our best detectives from our Hate Crime Task Force looking at this case, and we’re going to get down to the bottom of it, identify the individuals that committed this crime, and hold them accountable.”

Kemper made note of the increased patrols and police presence in the community, saying “We just want to make sure the community feels safe and provide a safe environment for them.”

The bochur who was targeted in Monday nights attack was discharged from the hospital the same night with minor injuries.
