Police released a photo of Yitzhak Shuchat today, calling him a “person of interest” in the high profile assault.
Police say Andrew Charles, a 20-year-old college student and the son of a police officer, was attacked April 14 on Carroll St. between Kingston and Albany Aves.
Charles, a college sophomore, was walking along the street when a white attacker on a bicycle sprayed him with Mace, police said.
A GMC Envoy then pulled up. A second man emerged from the vehicle and smashed Charles in the back and arm with a nightstick, police said. An adviser to the Charles family said both attackers were wearing yarmulkes.
Community members told the Daily News that the driver of the vehicle was a member of a neighborhood crime patrol.
Investigators have pulled the organization’s rosters as part of the ongoing probe.
The Brooklyn District Attorney’s office also has sat a grand jury to investigate the attack. The probe has been slowed by a lack of cooperation among witnesses. No arrests have been made.
