The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Unit is investigating three reported attacks on New York City’s Hasidic Jewish community within one hour; saying the robberies in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn could be religiously motivated.

“Obviously, might just be a run-of-the-mill mugging with the attempt as a bias crime, knowing that these people – just like myself, I go out of my house at 5:30, and many of them do, because prayer starts at six,” community activist Isaac Abraham told CBS2’s Christina Fan.

A series of vicious anti-Semitic attacks in Brooklyn, New York were caught on tape this week; raising serious new concerns over safety and security for the city’s Jewish population.

“Just received a report that a Hasidic father & son were beaten up in Williamsburg this past Friday night for no other reason than being Jewish. Police report has been filed. Here’s footage of the four violent suspects behind the attack – help @NYPDDetectives find them!” posted Dov Hikind, a former NY Assemblyman from Brooklyn.

“It’s shocking but not surprising that such violent hate crimes are being committed against Jews (yesterday in Bklyn) just as antisemitism is being mainstreamed. This attack resembles Nazi Germany where antisemites attacked Jews with glee. We won’t tolerate it!” he added.
