    Brooklyn, NY – A Staten Island man is under arrest in the early morning attack of a 62 year old Chasidic man as he walked down 13th Avenue on his to the synagogue this morning in Borough Park.

    As previously reported on VIN News (http://bit.ly/2yhyw0V), surveillance footage captured the vicious beating, sparking both fear and anger in Borough Park and prompting elected officials to call on the NYPD and the Brooklyn district attorney’s office to take swift action.

    Police said that they were called to the scene by a 911 call reporting the incident at the corner of 13th Avenue and 46th Street where they arrested 37 year old Farrukh Afzal, a driver with Church Avenue Car Service, and charged him with hate crime as an assault, criminal mischief and harassment.

    Afzal was previously arrested three times this past year for aggravated unlicensed operation of a vehicle, four times over the past three years for criminal contempt and for criminal mischief in March 2017.

    1. When the JDL was active in Borough Park, there would not have been a need to call the police. The JDL would have beaten the —- out of the perpetrator so badly, that his own Mother would never have recognized him.

    2. this goon lives at the following address
      their should be protests outside his house telling him to go back to the country he was born in as their is no place for goons in our peace loving country

    3. YOU NEED LEARN TO DEFEND YOURSELF — TAKE 1/2-1 OUT OF THE DAY AND SEND YOUR CHILDREN OR HAVE THEM TRAINED IN SCHOOL TO PROTECT AND NOT BE AFRAID. HOW MUCH MORE DO THE YIDEN NEED TO BE TORTURED WITHOUT HELPING THEMSELVES.

    4. Self defence classes must be taken by men women and children. Wake up- “they” are here, and they are staying here. Protect your neighborhoods, protect yourself, and send a message, “No one can come into a Jewish neighborhood, put us in danger without them beaten black and blue. Did this Chasid defend himself? Did he know how to defend himself?
