Brooklyn, NY – Police in the 90th Precinct are searching for an unidentified Hispanic man who threw something at a Chasidic man before shouting anti-Semitic remarks as he ran away from the scene.
The incident took place Sunday afternoon at 1:50 PM at Grand and River Streets near Grand Ferry Park. The 36 year old Chasidic man, identified by the New York Post as Joseph Singer, was cleaning his car when he was hit in the leg by an unknown substance.
