3 Bochurim Assaulted, the Perps Arrested

MONTICELLO, NY [CHI] — Three perpetrators were arrested following the beating of Lubavitcher Bochurim. Charged were William Harrison, 18, of Livingston Manor, Sean Gadsen, 16, of Youngsville, and Matthew Alcivar, 17, of Queens, and all three were charged with second-degree assault as a hate crime, gang assault in the second degree, aggravated harassment and disorderly conduct, they were arraigned and remanded to the Sullivan County Jail without bail.

The incident took place on last week on Thursday night, beginning inside the Monticello Wal-Mart where the two groups first came into contact where racial slurs and taunts were shouted at the Bochurim, then in the parking lot into a assault where one of the Bochurim sustained fractures to his face.

Witnesses gave chase and led to the apprehension of the three as they were fleeing at high speed on Route 17.

Hatzalah volunteers responded to the scene and treated the three Bochurim, one of which was transported to the Westchester Medical Center.

    Westchester Med is in Valhalla, in Westchester County. It’s where ‘serious’ cases go from Monsey, Monroe and the Catskills (you don’t want to know how bad the local hospitals are).
