3-Year-Old Jewish Boy Slapped In Face In BK Hate Crime Spree: PD

BED-STUY, BROOKLYN – Police are looking for suspects who beat a three-year-old and a nine-year-old Jewish boy during a hate crime in Bed-Stuy over the weekend.

The three attacks occurred on Friday and Sunday, the first night of Hanukkah, all just blocks apart on Skillman Street and Dekalb Avenue, according to police.

All three victims – a 3-year-old, a 9-year-old and an 18-year-old – were dressed in traditional Jewish clothing at the time of the attacks, which the Anti-Defamation League has described as “unacceptable”.

“We are outraged by this series of attacks against Jewish children and youth,” said Scott Richman, ADL regional director for New York and New Jersey. “Two of the three incidents happened on the first night of Hanukkah, which should be a time of celebration for our young people, not fear and trauma. ADL is offering this award to send a clear message that hate-motivated violence is absolutely unacceptable. “

In the first attack, the three-year-old boy was slapped on Skillman Street around 6 p.m. Friday, police said.
