CROWN HEIGHTS (VosIzNeias) — As if New York hasn’t seen enough Anti-Semitism in recent weeks, 2 unprovoked Anti-Semitic attacks occured on Saturday.

In the first incident, a Jewish man was assaulted in Crown Heights.

The victim was walking on Union Avenue and New York Avenue Saturday morning when he was attacked.

The man was crossing the street, when a black male passed by him on a bicycle and abruptly slapped him in the face and called him a dirty Jew.

The man walked into the police station for help and also alerted Crown Heights Shomrim. The NYPD Hate Crime Task Force is investigating.

In the second incident, 2 Jewish men were pelted with eggs in Boro Park.

Two Jewish men were walking on 19th Avenue and 53rd Street in Boro Park Friday night, when a vehicle passed by and pelted them eggs.

In this case the perpetrators didn’t use any words, but rather fled the area.

The NYPD Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating this incident as well.
